The Mississippi State basketball team is back in Starkville, Mississippi to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide at 8:00 p.m. CT/9:00 p.m. ET. After going on the road and losing their first game of the season vs. the Drake Bulldogs, the Mississippi State Bulldogs are back at home. The matchup between the Bulldogs and the Crimson Tide will be played at the Humphrey Coliseum in Starkville, Mississippi.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs look to win their first SEC game of the season tonight by continuing their defensive momentum that they have had all twelve games this 2022-2023 season. Chris Jans has come in as the first-year head coach of the Mississippi State basketball team and already made a massive difference. If you have watched this 2022-2023 Mississippi State basketball team, you know just how different they look compared to the last five years.
The Alabama Crimson Tide are 10-2 with wins over Longwood, Liberty, South Alabama, Jacksonville State, Michigan State, North Carolina, South Dakota State, Houston, Memphis, and Jackson State. The Crimson Tide have lost to only Connecticut and Gonzaga (both of which are Associated Press Top 25 opponents).
The Mississippi State Bulldogs have not played the same level of opponents as the Alabama Crimson Tide. With the Crimson Tide only losing 2 of their 12 games, I would say Alabama has a slight advantage. I do think having this game at the Humphrey Coliseum in Starkville, Mississippi will make a huge difference in the outcome of this basketball game.
