Can No. 2 Alabama limit Tolu Smith again?

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Mississippi State forward Tolu Smith has been one of the leading big men in the SEC for over three years.

He’s having perhaps his best season yet, averaging 13.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game — both leading the team.

As a team, the Bulldogs (12-7, 1-6 SEC) really struggled on offense in 2022-23. The state of Mississippi ranks 168th in the country for offensive efficiency, according to KenPom.
