MSU beats LSU to end skid

Posted 1/31/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — Losing streaks and poor shooting were the main topics of conversation prior to Saturday’s Southeastern Conference Western Division matchup here between the Mississippi State and LSU men's basketball teams. More than any other phase of the game, a woeful shooting percentage has proven to be the culprit for MSU’s recent mini-slump, which resulted in a pair of setbacks after a promising 3-0 start in SEC play. In losses at Alabama and at Arkansas in the past week, MSU connected on just 41 of 130 (31.5 percent) shots and was 7 of 44 (15.9 percent) from beyond the 3-point arc.

Fishing in South differs depending on temperatures

Posted 1/31/2010 in Local Columns

In our area, winter time normally gives us passing cold fronts and slow-biting bass.  Air temperatures and water temperatures rise and fall like a roller-coaster so the fish you caught on Saturday are not cooperating on Sunday afternoon. A good friend of mine and I were able to fish for a couple of hours one Saturday and were on the water by 2 p.m. The fish weren’t biting at first, but they seemed to wake up and it turned into a good time of fishing. The best fish were caught on a jig, but the majority of the fish were caught on soft plastics.

 

 

Rack helps MSU upset No. 9 Georgia

Posted 1/29/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — The push is on to make the NCAA tournament. For the first 37 minutes Thursday night, the Mississippi State women’s basketball team looked like a team that was connected, alert, and focused on realizing that goal.
