STARKVILLE - Statistically it was an average home game at Humphrey Coliseum Saturday afternoon for the Mississippi State University men's basketball program - another blowout loss. Coming into the contest against one of the bottom Southeastern Conference programs, MSU's average margin of defeat at home was 23.2 points and that included single digit losses to Louisiana State University and Texas A&M University. The Bulldogs nearly doubled that margin Saturday afternoon in front of an announced crowd of 4,087 but many of whom found the exits quickly.

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.

The 52-point loss was the largest margin of defeat for MSU (7-16, 2-9 Southeastern Conference) in the 38-season history of Humphrey Coliseum. The previous worst loss was a 41-point loss to Vanderbilt University on Feb. 27, 1993.
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?
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M University's Elston Turner knew something had to change after making just 7 of 27 shots in his past two games. So he stayed after each practice this week, remaining at the gym until he made at least 100, and sometimes as many as 150, extra shots a day.
