Losing Skid Hits 5 as State takes 67-50 Loss in Tuscaloosa

Defense, you guys (Mandatory Credit: Kelly Lambert-US PRESSWIRE)

At halftime last night in Coleman Coliseum, it was 25-25 all and State seemed to be in another dog fight. But the second half wasn't as kind to the dogs, as they continued to see their season slip away amidst a 67-50 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide.

An already thin team to begin with, State was clearly effected last night by the loss of Rodney Hood, who suffered a deep bone bruise against Kentucky on Tuesday night. And much like Tuesday night against the Cats, halftime turned out to be the ultimate killer for the dogs as they have been outscored in the last two 2nd halves 87-48.

It's safe to say that the tailspin is in full effect in Starkville. What was once a promising season has now turned into a fight to sneak into the NCAA tournament or maybe even the NIT. The dogs record is still better than some years sure, but if you take into account what was expected of this year and the way it started out, the last several weeks have been a bitter taste in the mouths of players, fans and coaches alike.

The Bulldogs were paced by 14 points each from Renardo Sidney and Dee Bost. The most telling stat of the night though? Arnett Moultrie played 40 points and shot the ball 3 times, THREE. Can't win that way guys.

The official Mississippi State vs. Alabama statistics from last night's matchup are here.

There's really nothing else worth reporting from last night's game.
