STARKVILLE -- Even though the Mississippi State football team is 3-1 and 1-2 in the Southeastern Conference, it feels good about where it stands entering the final seven games. MSU lost a heart-breaker to LSU 21-19 at home in the second week of the season. Two weeks ago, it went to Auburn, Alabama, and toppled the Tigers 17-9. However, MSU couldn't keep the winning going on the road Saturday, in a 30-17 loss to Texas A&M at Kyle Field.
STARKVILLE -- Breanna Richardson acknowledges the "bursts" were there in 2014-15. The 6-foot-1 forward had 16 points in a victory at Ole Miss, poured in 15 points in a victory at Auburn, had all 13 of her points in the second half in a loss at Tennessee, and matched her Southeastern Conference-high with 16 points against Florida. But Richardson also will tell you she had as many stretches last season that she would like to change. Those periods were replete with turnovers on moves to the baskets, missed perimeter shots, or defensive lapses.
WEST POINT -- Oak Hill Academy racked up 508 yards during a 48-13 win over Columbus Christian Academy in a Mississippi Association of Independent Schools Class A/AA, District 2 contest Friday night.

STARKVILLE -- On a night in which Starkville High School's offense stalled at times in the second half, the defense continued to surge en route to a 30-7 victory over the Northwest Rankin Cougars in Class 6A, Region 2 action.
MOOREVILLE - After rushing for just 17 yards in a 21-20 loss to Shannon a week ago, Aberdeen's backs found Mooreville's 3-man defensive front more to their liking as they racked up 208 yards on the ground in a 39-0 win here Friday on what was supposed to be the Troopers' Homecoming which was canceled because of the rain.
