Nevitt, Salter shine in win for No. 8 MSU

Posted 11/25/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State sophomore guard Kayla Nevitt had an extra advantage to work her way into the good graces of coach Vic Schaefer. "I have watched Kayla play since seventh or eighth grade," Vic Schaefer said. "She and (Vic's daughter and Kayla's MSU teammate) Blair (Schaefer) have played probably a hundred Amateur Athletic Union games together. I know her potential. I have seen it for a long time. I know more about her than any other player I have ever recruited. These nights will be the norm."



Running game starting to click for Noxubee County

Posted 11/25/2015 in High School Sports

MACON -- Tyrone Shorter doesn't get surprised by a lot of things. Earlier in the season, the Noxubee County High School football coach was caught off guard by the length of his team's winning streak in Class 4A, Region 4 (21 games). Aside from that, though, Shorter usually is in tune with the Tigers, knows all of their statistics, and what everybody is saying about his program.



Prescott, seniors want to go out with win at home

Posted 11/25/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Dak Prescott could have gone to LSU. The Haughton, Louisiana, native grew up around people who were big LSU fans, including his late mother, Peggy. But Mississippi State offered Prescott a scholarship early in the recruiting process and he committed to the Bulldogs. LSU offered him late, but he decided to stick with his commitment. Five years later, he's happy he did.



Columbus boys beat Callaway

Posted 11/25/2015 in High School Sports

More than a dozen turnovers and missed free throws limited what should have been a relatively smooth first half for the Columbus High boys basketball team Tuesday in its home game against Callaway High. Instead of having a big cushion, Columbus led by three points at halftime after going scoreless the first four minutes and going 4 for 12 at the free-throw line in the first half. That's when the Falcons' big boys went to work.



Kelly excited to be part of his first Egg Bowl

Posted 11/24/2015 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly didn't need many words to describe Saturday's highly anticipated Battle for the Golden Egg against Mississippi State. "We're good," Kelly said. "And they're good." And in the 112 years this rivalry has been played, that's actually pretty rare. When No. 19 Ole Miss (8-3, 5-2 Southeastern Conference) travels to face No. 23 Mississippi State (8-3, 4-3) in Starkville, it will be just the sixth time both teams are ranked in the in-state rivalry.



MSU eager to reclaim Egg Bowl trophy

Posted 11/24/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Dan Mullen was all over the jumbotron at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in 2012. After the Mississippi State football team beat Ole Miss 31-23 in 2010 in Oxford, Mullen told his players in the locker room, "We're never losing to this team again." MSU backed up their coach's statement in 2011, but Ole Miss earned a 41-24 victory in Oxford the following year to hand Mullen his first loss in the rivalry.



Avery Brown keeps Starkville High's tradition at RB going

Posted 11/24/2015 in High School Sports

STARKVILLE -- Starkville High School running back Avery Brown had lofty expectations to live up to this season. Matt Fuller rushed for 1,000 yards last season, while Jacquez Horsley was close to breaking the 1,000-yard mark but was bothered by injuries. Preston Baker, Brown's cousin, rushed for more than 1,000 yards in 2012. Brown knows all about the running backs who have come before him. He has used their contributions as motivation to help prepare him for his opportunity.



Dillingham emerging as bigger threat on offense

Posted 11/24/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- A little goes a long way with Dominique Dillingham. If you have watched the Mississippi State junior throw her body on the floor for loose balls or sacrifice her body to take a charge, you understand how much the 5-foot-9 guard gives to her team.



MSU builds momentum for Ole Miss game

Posted 11/23/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State football team didn't want to enter rivalry week on a two-game losing streak. Coming off a 31-6 loss to Alabama on Nov. 14 at Davis Wade Stadium, MSU hoped to get back on track against an Arkansas team that entered the game riding a four-game winning streak. Thanks to a record-breaking performance by Dak Prescott and a game-saving blocked field goal in the final minute by Beniquez Brown, MSU escaped Fayetteville, Arkansas, with a 51-50 victory.

Posted 11/23/2015 in Local Sports

Moore Jr., who was in his second race at Columbus, had the fastest car of the night, quickly passing pole-sitter Wesley Greene and opening a lead on Newman in the only significant green-flag run of the race.



Ole Miss bounces back with dominating win

Posted 11/23/2015 in College Sports

OXFORD -- The No. 25 Ole Miss football team showed no signs of a team struggling to overcome a catastrophic defeat at the hands of the Arkansas Razorbacks in its last outing two weeks ago, dominating No. 17 LSU from start to finish in a resounding 38-17 victory on Senior Day in front of an announced sellout crowd of 60,705 at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.



MSU men win last game on trip

Posted 11/23/2015 in College Sports

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Ben Howland finally got his wish for the Mississippi State men's basketball team to play with a halftime lead. Now he wants the Bulldogs to do a better job protecting that margin when they've got it. Gavin Ware scored 25 points to help MSU beat Missouri State 84-70 in Sunday's seventh-place game at the Puerto Rico Tipoff.



Ole Miss falls to Seton Hall

Posted 11/23/2015 in College Sports

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Seton Hall men's basketball coach Kevin Willard had one message for his team: Keep the ball out of Stefan Moody's hands. The Pirates did so, limiting the high-scoring guard to a season-low 13 points on the way to a 75-63 victory against Ole Miss on Sunday to take fifth place at the Charleston Classic.



Hamilton back to work after injury-ravaged season

Posted 11/22/2015 in High School Sports
