Cold shooting in second half dooms MSU

Posted 2/18/2013 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The second half again proved to be the undoing for the Mississippi State University women's basketball team. After a solid first half and an aggressive flurry to start the final 20 minutes, MSU hit only three field goals in a nine-minute stretch en route to a 63-41 loss to LSU before a crowd of 1,405 at Humphrey Coliseum. Danielle Ballard had a game-high 19 points to go with seven rebounds and four steals to help LSU (15-10, 6-6 Southeastern Conference) earn its first back-to-back league victories this season. It also marked the first time the Lady Tigers have won back-to-back games on the road.

May providing pressure on defense for MSU

Posted 2/14/2013 in College Sports

Everything starts with Katia May. As much as the junior said in the preseason she understood what it meant to be point guard in coach Vic Schaefer's system, May really had no idea what was required to "get up the line" and to pressure an opponent the length of the court. Playing defense for 94 feet is one thing, but doing it every possession?

Posted 2/13/2013 in High School Sports
