The Crimson Tide were co-led by a breakout game from Rylan Griffin, who had a career-high 21 points, five rebounds, and three assists on the night. Also in double digits were Aaron Estrada (21), Grant Nelson (13), Latrell Wrightsell Jr. (11), and Nick Pringle (10).

Earlier on Tuesday morning, Joe Lunardi of ESPN posted his bracketology for March Madness. He had Alabama just sitting outside of the top four seeds, but Alabama could move into a four-seed with a convincing win over Missouri.

Is an 18-point win convincing enough for you, Joe?

Alabama advances to 4-0 in SEC play, remaining one of just two teams undefeated in conference play. The other team is Auburn, who Alabama will play on Wednesday, January 24 at 6:30 p.m.

Alabama will have another test before hosting the Tigers, however. The Crimson Tide will travel to Knoxville, Tennessee to take on the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday, January 20 at 1:00 p.m. CT. Tennessee is the sixth-ranked team in the country and is sitting at 13-4 overall and 3-1 in conference play.

Alabama was hot with the three-point shot on Tuesday, shooting 48.1% from beyond the arc, led by Ryan Griffin, who was 5-for-7 on the night.

Alabamas out-rebounded Tennessee 35-23. The Crimson Tide still struggled with turnovers, however, racking up 13 on the night. If they hope to have a shot against tough SEC competition coming up on their schedule, they'll need to clean up the turnover margin.
