MSU women ready to put expectations to the test

Posted 11/14/2014 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- It's time to put the expectations to the test. The Mississippi State women's basketball team has been looking forward to a new campaign ever since it suffered a season-ending loss to South Florida in the quarterfinals of the Women's National Invitation Tournament on March 30. While the postseason run -- the program's first since a trip to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament in 2010 -- reflected the growth of the players in the second year under coach Vic Schaefer and his staff, the Bulldogs had even more to be excited about considering a talented recruiting class led by Victoria Vivians, the state's all-time leading high school scorer, was on its way.

WEST POINT -- The West Point High School football team's road to the Class 5A Playoffs has been paved with peril.

Starkville battle-tested for playoffs

Posted 11/14/2014 in High School Sports

The Starkville High School football team won games in a variety of ways to cap an undefeated regular season. The top-ranked Yellow Jackets won low-scoring defensive struggles and high-scoring shootouts.

Noxubee County will try to be more consistent

Posted 11/13/2014 in High School Sports

MACON -- A fast start doesn't guarantee success in the playoffs. That's one of the messages Noxubee County High School football coach Tyrone Shorter has tried to impress to his players this week following a 35-0 victory against Senatobia in the opening round of the Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 4A North State playoffs. The Tigers opened the game with a long touchdown drive on their opening possession and then appeared to let up, according to Shorter. That loss of focus coupled with four turnovers can spell disaster in the postseason, which is why Shorter and his assistant coaches have worked hard this week to get the players to re-focus.
