STARKVILLE -- While hardcore Mississippi State University sports fans know the third-ranked baseball team is on a 16-game winning streak to start the season, they might not realize coach John Cohen's squad next-door neighbor is on a streak of its own. The MSU softball team extended its winning streak to nine Wednesday night with an 8-1 victory against the University of Memphis at the MSU Softball Field. MSU broke it open with a five-run third inning to win its final non-conference game before opening Southeastern Conference play this weekend against No. 12 LSU in Starkville.

STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State University pitching coach Butch Thompson's pet project for the past six months has been a little-known freshman right-hander. The development of Myles Gentry started the minute he arrived from Gulfport High School as more of a thrower than a pitcher. Thompson also had to deal with the fact Gentry's pitching mechanics needed some fine tuning. Thompson's work in progress is going just fine, as is MSU's start to the 2013 season.
Andy Kennedy said he has likely seen more than a hundred University of Mississippi-Mississippi State University basketball games at Humphrey Coliseum. The latest one may have been the most painful.
Vic Schaefer hopes the Mississippi State University women's basketball team can back up his talk Monday afternoon. As part of the annual teleconference prior to the Southeastern Conference tournament, Schaefer said he has to be the "proudest coach in the country" based on the fact his players have kept "plugging away" while learning to deal with the ups and downs that come with being a young and inexperienced team. Those signs reared their head again Sunday, as MSU fell behind Auburn University by 16 points at halftime en route to a 74-65 victory.
STARKVILLE --The Mississippi State University baseball team climbed to No. 3 in the Baseball America rankings released Monday. MSU, which is riding a season-opening 15-game winning streak, will put that ranking on the line at 6:30 tonight when it plays host to Mississippi Valley State University at Dudy Noble Field.
The Big Ten Conference is measuring support for a proposal that would give baseball teams the option of playing non-conference games in the fall that would count toward determining the NCAA tournament field the following spring. Big Ten coaches voted to continue studying the possibility, and deputy commissioner Brad Traviolia said Monday the conference is in the process of explaining the concept to coaches across the country.
AUBURN, Ala. -- The Mississippi State University women's basketball team entered its game Sunday against Auburn University in control if its destiny and with postseason still on its mind. MSU's road to the postseason became infinitely more difficult following a 74-65 loss to Auburn before a Senior Day crowd of 2,738 at Auburn Arena in the Southeastern Conference regular-season finale for both teams.

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State University women's basketball team has brought the "Secretary of Defense" to the verge of tears on several occasions this season. None of those efforts compared to the one MSU delivered Thursday night. The result brought a "whew" to Vic Schaefer's lips as he savored his first signature victory.
STARKVILLE -- Adam Frazier has been waiting months to say four words about Mississippi State University baseball team's offense. "We told you so," Frazier said about the Bulldogs' hot start. "We told you all before the season started we could easily do more than we did last year, and that's what is happening." No. 5 MSU recorded its seventh game with double-digit hits Wednesday night in a 17-5 victory against the University of Rhode Island at Dudy Noble Field.

The University of Mississippi men's basketball team is finally playing well again after a mid-season swoon. Now the Rebels hope it's not too late to make a run to their first NCAA tournament since 2002.
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- On the verge of being forgotten two weeks ago, University of Kentucky point guard Ryan Harrow now has control of his role and game. The same can be said for the Wildcats' resurgent Southeastern Conference and NCAA tournament prospects, much stronger after looking done not long ago.
