Rick Rayâ€™s first season as the men's basketball coach at Mississippi State saw two losses to Alabama.
The Crimson Tide beat the Bulldogs 75-43 in Starkville and 64-56 in Tuscaloosa, Ala. MSU has lost three-straight to Alabama, but havenâ€™t lost four-straight since 1993-95.
The Bulldogs (11-4, 1-1) look to keep that from happening tonight when they travel to Coleman Coliseum for a 7 p.m. tipoff with the Crimson Tide (7-8, 1-1).
â€śNow the key is getting our guys to come back down, get ready and go compete against Alabama,â€ť Ray said. â€śThey do some things that give us problems. They press in the backcourt and we have to not turn the ball over.â€ť
The game can be seen on SEC-TV.
MSU has lost five-straight at Coleman Coliseum. The last win to come there was in 2008 when the Bulldogs knocked off Alabama 73-66.
