Alabama basketball is the last unbeaten in SEC play after Texas A&M fell at Kentucky, 76-67, meaning the Crimson Tide now hold sole possession of the conference lead heading into Saturday's game at Missouri (5 p.m., SEC Network).

The Aggies (13-6) were 5-0 in conference play going into Saturday, holding a share of the conference lead with Alabama. The Crimson Tide (16-2) improved to 6-0 in SEC play with a 78-66 win at Vanderbilt on Tuesday, behind Brandon Miller's 30 point-game in his hometown.

The Crimson Tide boasts SEC wins over Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Kentucky, Arkansas, LSU and Vanderbilt. In the non-conference slate, Alabama has wins over then-No.1s North Carolina and Houston along with Michigan State and Memphis. Alabama's losses are to Gonzaga and UConn at neutral sites. The Aggies hold SEC wins over Florida (twice), LSU, Missouri and South Carolina.

Auburn and Tennessee came into Saturday with one league loss apiece.
