That’s where dreams go to die — at least for Alabama Basketball and head coach Nate Oats. Since arriving in Tuscaloosa in 2019, Oats has yet to win in Columbia, Mo. — and that includes the 2020-21 team that won the SEC championship and reached the Sweet 16.
Since 2012-13, the Crimson Tide has visited “CoMo” seven times and has lost five of the contests — including the last three.
But this year could be different. Alabama (16-2, 6-0 SEC) is unblemished atop the SEC as it stands now. The Crimson Tide also has perhaps the best player in college basketball on its side in true freshman Brandon Miller.
Missouri has been one of the big surprises in the conference this season. After finishing 12-21 (5-13 SEC) a season ago, the Tigers (13-4, 2-3 SEC) have improved greatly in 2022-23 behind first-year head coach Dennis Gates. Gates came to Missouri after three seasons at Cleveland State, where he won two Horizon League titles.
