MSU contains Patterson in second half

Posted 11/27/2016 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Keep Shea Patterson in the pocket. That's what Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen's message was to his team at halftime. The Ole Miss quarterback had 261 yards of offense (67 rushing, 194 passing) in the first two quarters. Patterson finished with 393 yards (73 rushing, 320 passing), but MSU didn't allow a point in the second half in a 55-20 win Saturday in the Battle for the Golden Egg at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Posted 11/27/2016 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State men's basketball team had its first glimpse of life without leading scorer Quinndary Weatherspoon on Friday night. It wasn't pretty.

Columbus loses two at Lighthouse event

Posted 11/27/2016 in High School Sports

CORINTH -- Columbus High School boys basketball coach Gary Griffin was looking for a way to gauge where his team stood. Instead of playing Class 1A, 2A or 3A teams to ensure a 25-win season and early victories, Griffin decided to stack the schedule and tougher competition. As a first-year head coach with almost an entire new team, Griffin wanted to see how the Falcons faced adversity and responded to it.



New Hope boys win at Lighthouse Thanksgiving Classic

Posted 11/26/2016 in High School Sports

CORINTH -- When someone thinks of New Hope High School boys basketball, coach Drew McBrayer knows Tyler Stevenson doesn't come to mind. The junior guard is overshadowed by the likes of seniors Terryonte Thomas and JaQuante Bell. Thomas, who has 10 NCAA Division I offers, gets most of the attention. Chalmette High coach Butch Stockton said Thomas was the only New Hope player he knew about prior to the teams' game Friday in the fourth-annual Lighthouse Thanksgiving Classic at Corinth High.



Hurts, Alabama win Iron Bowl

Posted 11/26/2016 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The Alabama football team's defense still seems to have a wall erected at the goal line, and Jalen Hurts remains unflappable enough to shrug off mistakes. The combination has been good enough every time this season. Hurts rebounded from two early interceptions to pass for 286 yards and the top-ranked Crimson Tide's defense did the rest in a 30-12 victory against No. 16 Auburn on Saturday over No. 16 Auburn.

Posted 11/25/2016 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi state football team is looking to snap two two-game losing streaks. In addition to erasing the memory of back-to-back losses to Alabama (51-3) and Arkansas (58-42), MSU will try to avoid a three-game losing streak to Ole Miss for the first time since 2002-04 when the teams face off in the Battle for the Golden Egg at 2:30 p.m. Saturday (SEC Network) at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford.

Two great defenses will be on display in Iron Bowl

Posted 11/25/2016 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It's no surprise that the Alabama football team brings a formidable, aggressive defense that ranks among the nation's best into the Iron Bowl. The twist: Now, Auburn can make the same claim. The 16th-ranked Tigers have the program's best defense in years coming into Saturday's showdown with the top-ranked Crimson Tide, which still probably sets the standard among college defenses.



MSU great Ferriss dies at 94

Posted 11/25/2016 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- David Meadow "Boo" Ferriss, one of the most beloved figures in Mississippi State baseball history and a Boston Red Sox great, passed away on Thursday. He was 94. "A gentleman in every sense of the word, Boo Ferriss will be missed but certainly not forgotten," MSU Director of Athletics John Cohen said. "His contributions go well beyond the game of baseball. The amount of lives he touched is staggering. He is truly the greatest ambassador for baseball in the history of the state of Mississippi."

Former MSU great Thomas likes what she sees in Bulldogs

Posted 11/23/2016 in Local Columns

STARKVILLE LaToya Thomas was part of the first hey day of Mississippi State women's basketball. The Greenville product lit up scoreboards across the Southeastern Conference en route to a career in which she was a four-time Kodak All-American and led the Bulldogs to the second round of the NCAA tournament three times. But Thomas, who is MSU's all-time leading scorer with 2,981 points, never played before a crowd of more than 6,055 at Humphrey Coliseum. That's why it was so special for the three-time player of the year finalist to be back at the Hump on Sunday to see a crowd of 7,762 on hand to watch then-No. 10 MSU beat then-No. 8 Texas 79-68 before a national television audience on the SEC Network.
