Updates with new lead, quotes. Collin Sexton, the Crimson Tide's leading scorer, missed his second consecutive game because of an abdominal injury. Dazon Ingram and Braxton Key kept the young Alabama basketball team from fading late.

Mississippi State trailed by a point with a little over 5 minutes left in the game Saturday night at Alabama.

Alabama represents the ninth coaching staff that Locksley has been a part of.

"When we heard (Sexton) wasn't playing, we all just had to step up (and handle the ball) by committee", junior backup point guard Avery Johnson Jr. said Friday. Then Key scored on a put back for the Tide and John Petty hit a jump shot.

"The coach has been challenging me to get more offensive rebounds", Key said. "We came out where they were the aggressors and we were on our heels".

Another freshman contributing to Alabama's second-half rally was Herbert Jones, who picked up his second foul of the game with eight minutes remaining in the first half, but returned to fill the stat sheet on both ends. He also had four assists. The Tide held on to the lead with a three by Braxton Key.

Even a team manager had been daily trying to fire him up by giving Key grief about his low shooting percentage.

"So let's man up and try to get the job done, because they're not going to quit", Johnson said. "It just builds confidence". "I was really proud of the fight our guys had, roaring back to give us a chance there". Weatherspoon just missed as he finished with nine rebounds. Aric Holman added a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds and Abdul Ado provided 11 points.

Mississippi St: Has lost 11 in a row on the road dating back to last season. In SEC play alone, Alabama is averaging 14.7 turnovers per game and ranks last in the conference with a 0.9 assist-to-turnover ratio (233 assists to 258 turnovers) on the season.

The Bulldogs began chipping away at the deficit in the second half, outscoring Alabama 32-13 to tie the game at 54 by the 6:50 mark.

At halftime, Alabama shot 51.6 percent from the field and MSU shot 32 percent.
