After suffering two losses in the last week, the No. 24 Alabama Crimson Tide are prime candidates to drop out of the AP Top 25 on Monday. However, they’ll get a chance to get back on track this evening when heading to Starkville, MS, to meet the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
Alabama (11-5, 2-2 SEC) came out on the losing end of its rivalry bout with Auburn on Tuesday, falling at home 81-77. The Crimson Tide had to work to come back from a 14-point deficit with just under eight minutes left, but ultimately couldn’t get the job done. Jahvon Quinerly led the Tide 14 points, six rebounds, and five assists.
Mississippi State (11-4, 2-1 SEC) emerged victorious on Wednesday with an 88-72 blowout victory over Georgia. The Bulldogs were pests on defense, coming away with 15 turnovers, 10 blocks, and nine steals in the win. Iverson Molinar exploded for 28 points and seven assists.
