Kermit Davis spent his playing days at Mississippi State, and he spoke on the importance of this rivalry on Friday.
"I've been on both sides of it," Davis said. "It's one of the greatest rivalries in the country. After that game when Breein [Tyree] made a last-second shot, [Clark Kellog] said that was one of the greatest atmospheres of college basketball that he had seen between two teams."
