The Missouri Tigers just can’t seem to figure it out. Wednesday nights 62-49 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide marked the third time this year that the Tigers have scored fewer than 50 points. Keanau Post was the only Tiger in double figures with 11 points, while Missouri’s usual scoring duo of Johnathon Williams III and Wes Clark combined for a paltry 13 points.
In the first half the Tigers remained in the game matching each of Alabama’s conversions and only trailed 26-24 at the break. In the second half Missouri’s lack of consistency hurt them. They were unable to produce anything positive on the offensive end and defensively foul trouble only made it worse.
The Crimson Tide reached the charity stripe 34 times on the night converting on 24 of those chances. The Tigers on the other hand only made it to the stripe 13 times converting on nine of those attempts.
Levi Randolph led all scorers with 20 points for the Tide, as they were able to stretch the lead late and come away with the 62-49 victory.
There wasn’t much clicking on the offensive side of the ball for Missouri, which has been the case of late. Aside from Keith Shamburger’s 11 assists and Post’s 11 points the Missouri offense looked abysmal.
Losing eight in a row is tough on any team, but something has to change eventually, right?
Missouri is next in action at home against Texas A&M.
