After an incredible road trip that featured wins over projected NCAA Tournament teams Florida and LSU, the Crimson Tide return to Tuscaloosa to host the Mississippi State Bulldogs in front of a sell-out crowd. Retin Obasohan and company will try to keep the momentum rolling, as the Tide has been one of the hottest teams in college basketball over the course of the last three weeks, a stretch that began with a win over State in Starkville.
This is a must-win game for Alabama, as the Tide can't afford any bad losses at this juncture. Bracketologists have been hesitant to put Alabama into their projected brackets; the Tide can't leave any doubt for the selection committee when Selection Sunday rolls around in just three weeks.
Tip-off is set for 1:30 PM CST, and the game will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
