Mississippi State men's basketball falls at Auburn

Mississippi State men's basketball lost at Auburn 78-63. The Bulldogs got off to a terrible start in the first half, particularly on the offensive end. State got into more of a groove in the second half to make it more competitive, but they had dug themselves too big a hole. You won't win at Auburn unless you give a full 40-minute effort.
