It’s the second round of the SEC Tournament on Thursday in Nashville. It’s a 5/12 match up between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
This is the third meeting betwene the two teams. Alabama won the first two match ups by nine and ten points respectively. The winner of this game will take on the South Carolina Gamecocks.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
The Mississippi State Bulldogs have had an up and down season so far, and the only way they can make the NCAA Tournament is by winning this SEC Tournament.
They come into this game with a 16-15 record. In their last nine games they have lost seven of them, but they have won their last two games, both over the LSU Tigers.
The Bulldogs are a pretty middle of the road team on both sides of the ball. They rank 187 in points scored and 166 in points given up. The problem for the Bulldogs has been finishing out games.
To win this game they need to get the early lead. They won’t have much confidence coming into this game having lost two games in a row to the Crimson Tide so if they get down early it could be a long night.
Alabama Crimson Tide
The Alabama Crimson Tide have had an up and down season but should get a post season berth, but they will need to win the SEC tournament to get a berth into the NCAA tournament.
They finished the regular season with a record of 17-13 and fifth place in the SEC. They really struggled in the last few games going 1-3 in their last four games. All three of those losses came against teams that won’t make the NCAA Tournament.
The strength for Alabama is on the defensive side of the ball. They only give up 64.7 points per game which is 33rd in the country.
They aren’t a great team on the offensive end so they have problems coming back in games if they are down. To win this game they need to start off great on both ends of the floor but especially defensively.

- Under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.
- MSST are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Alabama.
