In the final seconds, Alabama’s Quanetria Bolton hit her third three-pointer of the game, sealing the victory for Bama.

Sophomore guard Sophie Cunningham scored a season-high 24 points on 10-of-16 (62.5 percent) shooting. Cunningham scored all eight of Mizzou’s second quarter points.  Cierra Porter finished with her eighth double-double of the season with 11 points and 10 rebounds and she tied her career-high with five blocked shots.
