Posted 2/23/2015 in College Sports

Ole Miss men outlast Tennessee

Robson continues hot start at plate for Bulldogs

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- There is nothing about Mississippi State center fielder Jacob Robson that screams middle-of-the-order hitter. Maybe that's why it's working so well. Robson, a 5-foot-7, 160-pound speedster out of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, isn't a threat to hit a home runs. And with his slender build and contact-hitting approach, he doesn't seem like a typical run producer. But there he is, the sweet-hitting left-hander anchored at the No. 5 spot in MSU's batting order.

 

 

MSU softball team sweeps Penn State

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Samantha Ricketts started earning her keep very early as the new hitting coach for the Mississippi State softball team. Ricketts has instilled a positive attitude and a new belief system at the plate. Both have paid dividends early as MSU is off to a 12-1 start after a 9-3, 10-5 doubleheader sweep of Big Ten Conference foe Penn State on Saturday at the MSU Softball Field.

 

 

MSU can't pull upset of No. 18 Arkansas

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The opponent changes, but the results continue to stay the same for the Mississippi State men's basketball team. Two days after leading archrival Ole Miss for most of the game before falling in the end, MSU repeated that scenario Saturday against No. 18 Arkansas. Despite leading at halftime and for much of the second half, MSU endured a six-minute scoreless stretch in crunch time and never recovered in a 65-61 loss at Humphrey Coliseum.

 

 

MSU women have found right chemistry this season

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Chemistry has been a key ingredient in the success of the Mississippi State women's basketball team this season. Coaches never know how the personalities on each team will mix, but MSU coach Vic Schaefer hasn't had to worry about that dilemma. The only problem that has plagued Schaefer has been trying to find playing time for 14 talented players. Thanks to the willingness of those players to coexist and to challenge each other, MSU has secured a spot in both national polls (No. 14 in The Associated Press, No. 16 in USA Today) and has matched a program record for wins in a season with three regular-season games to go.

MSU's bullpen starts strong in first four games

Posted 2/18/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen spent much of the preseason telling media, fans, and his players about the importance of a dominant bullpen. In an effort to continue his team's recent trend of strong bullpens, Cohen made several changes. Among them was moving senior Trevor Fitts, a starting pitcher, to closer and moving Vance Tatum, another starter, to reliever. Cohen also wanted to have senior left-hander Ross Mitchell (24-5 record entering the season) as an option out of the bullpen. So far, so good.

Richardson adds balance for Bulldogs

Posted 2/17/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Breanna Richardson did a great job Sunday hiding tired legs.

The 6-foot-1 sophomore forward tied for game-high scoring honors with 16 points, grabbed six rebounds, and had three assists to lead then-No. 13 MSU to a 75-62 victory against Florida before a season-high crowd of 5,183 at Humphrey Coliseum.

MSU baseball beats Cincinnati to complete weekend sweep

Posted 2/16/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- It's not surprising that the Mississippi State baseball team won its first four games this weekend to start the season. The only surprising part is how easily MSU did it. Starting with a 6-2 victory against Cincinnati on Friday night, MSU wasn't challenged in its four-game stretch against Cincinnati or Miami University. MSU's dominance started to take hold Saturday in 7-1 win against Miami. It built on that effort later in the day in a 19-5 win against Cincinnati. On Sunday, MSU put that exclamation point on the sweep with a 16-7 victory against Cincinnati at Dudy Noble Field.
