Facing a 13-point halftime deficit, Mississippi State’s men’s basketball team turned to its top three leading scorers of D.J. Stewart Jr., Iverson Molinar and Tolu Smith, who answered the bell with 28 second-half points, but #6 Alabama was able to hold onto a 64-59 decision on Saturday at Humphrey Coliseum.

The Bulldogs (13-12, 7-9 SEC) had their 3-game home winning streak over Alabama (19-6, 14-2 SEC) come to a close. The victory also enabled the Crimson Tide to clinch the SEC regular season title.
