The Alabama Crimson Tide visit the “Hump” searching for a season-sweep of Mississippi State Tuesday night.
When these SEC rivals met Jan. 29, Alabama exited Coleman Coliseum with a signature 83-79 win. Since, the Tide has won two-of-three, while Mississippi State has lost two-of-three. However, those Bulldog setbacks were tooth-and-nail encounters against two top-25 ranked opponents — no. 5 Kentucky and no. 21 LSU.
Meanwhile, Alabama’s current two-game win streak is built upon the SEC’s bottom rung: Vanderbilt (0-10 conference play) and Georgia (1-9 conference play).
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Tide avoided a repeat of its Mississippi State blunder (2-8 SEC) by downing Vanderbilt 77-67 in the team’s last outing.
Freshman Alabama standout Kira Lewis Jr. added 18 points, as Bama’s reserves outscored Vandy’s bench 26-12.
From Memorial Gymnasium, Senior Riley Norris’ 15 points and 12 rebounds sparked the Crimson Tide’s second unit. Though opposite Vanderbilt, Alabama’s saving grace became a 12-of-24 3PM strike which offset 19 Tide fouls and 13 turnovers — yet, ultimately the Commodores’ eleven missed free-throws (17-28 FTM) sealed victory for Avery Johnson’s enigmatic crew.
Holding a modest win-steak, Alabama will look for another balanced offensive performance to upend host Mississippi State.
In the teams’ last encounter, eight Tide players scored at least six points. Senior Donta Hall paced Alabama with 18 points, and was joined in double-digit scoring by reserves John Petty (13) and Riley Norris (11).
Mississippi State Bulldogs
Just 4-6 in conference play, Mississippi State holds an impressive 92-84 Jan. 26 win vs. then #16-ranked Auburn.
However, since, the Bulldogs are 1-3, losing most recently 71-67 vs. a steamrolling Kentucky squad. Trailing 40-25 at the half, Ben Howland’s men fell just short to UK after offering a spirited post-intermission rally. Bulldog stars Lamar Peters (16) and Quinndary Weatherspoon (14) added drama while combining for 30 points.
To avenge its upset loss tonight vs. Alabama, Mississippi State must improve its three point and free throw production –each of which free-fell on Alabama’s floor.
