Missouri tennis finished at the bottom of the Southeastern Conference for the second consecutive year after falling 4-1 to No. 35 Alabama on Sunday in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Just as they did against Auburn on Friday, the Tigers grabbed an early lead via a 2-1 doubles point victory. Marta Oliveira and Mackenzy Middlebrooks recorded a 6-1 win, while Gabrielle Goldin and Taylor Gruber squeaked out a 7-6 victory.

But Missouri didn’t get much joy after that, as Alabama quickly took control of the singles matches. Middlebrooks, the No. 106 singles player in ITA’s women’s rankings, lost to No. 47 Andie Daniell 6-2, 6-1, while Serena Nash (6-3, 6-2) and Vivien Ábrahám (6-2, 6-4) were also defeated in two sets. Oliveira won her first set against Ann Selim but was eventually downed 6-2, 2-6, 0-6, as the Crimson Tide clinched the team victory.

The Tigers finish the regular season with a 14-14 record, but they went 0-13 in the SEC once again and haven’t beaten a conference foe since April 16, 2017. They will hope to end that dry spell in the SEC Tournament against No. 44 Arkansas at 1 p.m. Wednesday in College Station, Texas.
