DATE & TIME: Saturday, January 25, 8 p.m. (ET)

FACTS & STATS: Site: Coleman Coliseum (15,316) -- Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Television: ESPN2. Home Record: LSU 8-2, Alabama 8-3. Away Record: LSU 2-2, Alabama 0-4. Neutral Record: LSU 2-1, Alabama 0-3. Conference Record: LSU 3-2, Alabama 2-3. Series Record: Alabama leads, 101-67.

GAME NOTES: The Alabama Crimson Tide will try to halt a two-game losing streak as they host the LSU Tigers in Southeastern Conference action at Coleman Coliseum Saturday.

LSU has won two in a row and three of its last four games, all in SEC play. The Tigers hung on to beat Missouri, 77-71, Tuesday, which gave them a 3-2 record in the conference. LSU sits two games back of SEC leader Florida.

Alabama has dropped two consecutive contests after the team had won three of its previous four games. The Tide were defeated by Missouri last Saturday and by Florida, 68-62, Thursday at home. Alabama is sitting at 2-3 in the SEC.

The Crimson Tide have a handle on the all-time series lead between the two programs, 101-67. This clash represents the first and only time these teams will meet during the regular season.

Missouri erased a 62-56 LSU lead to take a 65-64 advantage with 3:41 left to play before LSU woke up in its 77-71 win. Shavon Coleman netted a team-high 19 points for the Tigers on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor. Johnny O'Bryant III scored 16 points and grabbed six rebounds, while Jordan Mickey had a double- double with 14 points and 13 rebounds. Andre Stringer contributed 12 points in the win. The Tigers shot 44.1 percent from the floor.

O'Bryant leads the team this season in scoring at 14.4 ppg on 51.1 percent shooting. His 7.5 rpg mark is the team's best as well, only slightly ahead of Mickey's 7.3 rpg average. Mickey tops the squad in blocked shots with 62 and is second in scoring with 13.1 ppg. Stringer checks in at third on the team with 12 ppg.

Alabama's loss to Florida at home snapped the Crimson Tide's 14-game SEC home winning streak. In the loss, Alabama shot a dismal 16.7 percent from 3-point range, while Florida connected on 35.7 percent from distance. Trevor Releford scored 14 points to pace the Crimson Tide, adding a team-best four assists to his stat line. Nick Jacobs added 12 points, Levi Randolph scored 11 and Shannon Hale contributed 10. From the floor, Alabama connected on 38.6 percent of its shots.

Releford has been the go-to player for Alabama this season, netting 18.1 ppg on 49.8 percent shooting from the field. His 49 assists is a team best, and 40 steals is topped only by Retin Obasohan, who has 41. Obasohan is second on the team in scoring with 12.2 ppg, and leads the squad in blocked shots with 23. Rodney Cooper leads the Tide with a 4.5 rpg mark.

Alabama's SEC home winning streak was just ended by Florida, and, unless the Crimson Tide can step up offensively against LSU, the team may go on a two- game home losing streak.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: LSU 75, Alabama 68
