“It’s tough, it’s tough. We just have to find a way in this SEC Tournament to get a win.” – MSU sophomore guard Fred Thomas said as the Bulldogs have lost 13-straight

Song to describe game: There’s Your Trouble by the Dixie Chicks – This really doesn’t describe the game because MSU can’t put a finger on what’s the trouble. But there is trouble for the Bulldogs.
