STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- An evaluation on Wednesday revealed
Mississippi State's Rodney Hood has a deep bone bruise in his left
knee.
The 6-foot-8 freshman guard was injured late in the first half
of Mississippi State's 73-64 loss to No. 1 Kentucky while fighting
for position on a rebound. He didn't return to the game, watching
from the bench in the second half.
Though there is no structural damage to the knee, no return date
has been set, according to MSU spokesman Gregg Ellis.
The loss of Hood for any length of time is a blow for the
Bulldogs, who are already reeling from a four-game losing streak.
Hood's started all 28 games this season, averaging 11 points per
game.
Mississippi State (19-9, 6-7 Southeastern Conference) travels to
face Alabama (17-9, 6-6) on Saturday.
