Alabama Basketball: Crimson collapse in Columbia disappointing

Alabama basketball played its worst game of 2020 in Saturday’s regular-season final against the Missouri Tigers. If possible, the loss was worse than the 19-point, 69-50 deficit. Missouri came out on top in every facet of the game.

The stats listed below are bad enough. Most disappointing for the followers of Alabama basketball was the way the Crimson Tide finished the game. It is not unfair to say the Tide quit in the last five minutes.
