Key to victory: Sophomore hits stride, Alabama outlasts Mississippi State

Key to victory: Sophomore hits stride, Alabama outlasts Mississippi State

Daboll spent just one year with the Crimson Tide, marking his first time in the collegiate ranks since serving as a graduate assistant for Michigan State for two years from 1998 to 1999.

"I was able to get hot at the right moment and that's what we needed", Peters said. John Petty had nine points on 3-of-11 shooting after hitting eight 3-pointers in Wednesday night's upset of No. 17 Auburn.

Daboll, of course, helped lead the Crimson Tide offense to the program's fifth national championship under Saban despite an inconsistent passing game behind second-year starting quarterback Jalen Hurts, who never appeared to develop into a reliable passer under Daboll's tutelage.

"Obviously we had a very poor start to the game and they jumped on us quickly", Mississippi State coach Ben Howland said.

It's being reported that Locksley will also coach the Crimson Tide's quarterbacks.

Dazon Ingram made two free throws to give the Tide the lead again, but Weatherspoon made two free throws to force another tie.

"So let's man up and try to get the job done, because they're not going to quit", Johnson said. Less than 5 minutes into the contest, the Bulldogs had already matched their turnover total (four) from Tuesday's win over Vanderbilt, Alabama (13-6, 5-2) was dominating on the offensive glass and State immediately found itself in a double-digit hole. "It's a tough loss considering how we fought back and gave ourselves the chance to win". The forward had seven rebounds, four steals, and four assists to go along with his 11 points.

Aric Holman stood out for MSU with a double-double, he scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. It was a bitter pill for MSU to swallow after essentially coming back from the dead to even make it a game. Made 21 of 56 shots (37.5 percent) but hit five second-half 3-pointers.

At halftime, Alabama shot 51.6 percent from the field and MSU shot 32 percent. In the second half, he went on a run where he made five long-range shots in a row.

Johnson said that Sexton, the team's leading scorer on the season, was "not closer to ready" to return from his abdominal injury.

Alabama visits MS on Tuesday night, the Tide's only road contest during this five-game stretch.
