CRAWFORD -- Jimmie Williams felt the need to accelerate his son's recruitment.
STARKVILLE -- A day after tying a 33-year-old stolen bases record, Derrick Armstrong kept running Sunday. The Mississippi State senior outfielder Derrick Armstrong showed again why he is a player opponents hate to play, delivering a key two-run single in a seven-run seventh inning that pushed No. 18 MSU to a 9-0 victory against Eastern Illinois before a crowd of 7,631 at Dudy Noble Field.
ATHENS, Ga. -- The Georgia women's basketball team used an 11-0 run early in the first half Sunday to build a double-digit lead en route to its 77-48 rout of Mississippi State at Stegeman Coliseum.

Lee Boyd isn't a big sabermatrician. But the New Hope High School baseball coach knows enough about history to realize his team faces an unusually difficult challenge this season. Part of the toughness involves being one of the state's most respected programs that typically gets the best game from every opponent. The challenges New Hope will face this season figure to be even harder due to the bull's eye on the team's back after winning the Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A state title.
