    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Jamont Gordon scored 24 points and keyed a late run in Mississippi State's 66-56 victory over Alabama on Saturday.

    The Bulldogs (13-5, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) led by as many as 13 points midway through the second half before Alabama (11-8, 0-4) made a final comeback attempt.

    Senario Hillman hit a layup and free throw to bring the Tide to within 59-55 with 3:58 left.

    Then Gordon had a steal and dunk to start a 7-0 run for the Bulldogs, who are the only SEC West team without a league loss.

    Alabama didn't score again until Demetrius Jemison's free throw with 39 seconds left.

    The Bulldogs made 12-of-26 3-pointers while Alabama was just 2-of-14.
