Locksley has been with the Crimson Tide since 2016.

The celebration will extend to the north steps of Bryant-Denny Stadium where the various championship trophies will be presented.

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. The Tide held on to the lead with a three by Braxton Key. He came in 1 of 15 from 3-point range this season but hit a pair in this game.

The moment the three-pointer dropped, Braxton Key threw up his hands as if to say "about time".

"I have no expectations until I can see him out on the floor today", Johnson said Friday afternoon of Sexton's availability today. He followed that up with a layup to help the Bulldogs wipe out the big deficit. "It is a tough loss considering how we fought back and gave ourselves a chance".

"I was able to get hot at the right moment and that's what we needed", Peters said. Quinndary Weatherspoon added 12 points, while Abdul Ado and Aric Holman each added 11 points.

Mississippi St: Has lost 11 in a row on the road dating back to last season. He played in four games and made one tackle.

For the contest, MSU hit 21 of 56 shots from the field (37.5 percent), 7 of 23 shots from 3-point range (30.4 percent) and 13 of 16 shots from the foul line (81.3 percent). Has won eight of the last nine meetings, including the last four.

But while Sexton's absence might not have been felt on the scoreboard as much, it was certainly noticeable on the floor, especially in a first half mired by turnovers.

The Tide were without the services of star freshman point guard Collin Sexton, who missed his second straight game with an abdominal injury suffered in Monday's practice.
