When coach Avery Johnson looked around the locker room prior to tip off on Saturday he didn’t recognize the team in front of him.
“I didn’t like the energy in the locker room before the game,” Johnson said. “We had a different type of energy before LSU and Florida.”
At first Johnson’s fears might have seemed misplaced when the Crimson Tide jumped out to an 11-4 lead over Mississippi State in the first five minutes of play. In the following four minutes the team with the longest active win streak in the SEC (5 wins) lost the lead for the remainder of the game and saw its streak snapped as the Bulldogs left town with a 67-61 victory.
