EMCC claims region title

Posted 3/5/2010 in College Sports

CLINTON –- For the second straight year, East Mississippi Community College will be represented in the NJCAA Division I Basketball Championship. Last year the EMCC women made it to the national tournament and this year it’s the men’s turn. The 12th-ranked EMCC Lions punched their ticket to the national tournament Thursday by beating Itawamba Community College 78-64 in the championship game of the NJCAA Region 23 Tournament at A.E. Wood Coliseum on the Mississippi College campus. 



MSU baseball team dealing with adversity

Posted 3/5/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen didn’t know when his team would face its first bout of adversity, though he knew it was coming after a 4-0 start.  This past weekend’s three-game sweep at the hands of the Southeastern Louisiana Lions left the Mississippi State Bulldogs at 4-3 heading into this weekend’s BankFirst Baseball Challenge at Dudy Noble Field. The Bulldogs topped it off last Sunday with a 6-5 loss in which they had a two-run lead. That followed Saturday’s 8-5 loss when they commit five errors.

Posted 3/3/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — The Mississippi State men’s basketball team’s prospects of making the NCAA tournament are looking brighter and brighter. But one misstep at 7 tonight against Auburn University (WCBI) could ruin those good feelings. Once two games off the top in the Southeastern Conference’s Western Division, the Bulldogs were losing grip on their postseason hopes coming off four straight road losses.

MSU moves on without Sidney in its plans

Posted 3/2/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — While Mississippi State men’s basketball fans wonder what’s up with freshman forward Renardo Sidney, head coach Rick Stansbury isn’t worrying about his gem recruit helping the team this season. It makes sense, seeing as the Bulldogs (21-8, 9-5 Southeastern Conference) have clinched the SEC West and are on the bubble to make the NCAA tournament, according to NCAA bracket experts.  Sidney wasn’t on the bench for the team’s game against Alabama, but the yet-to-be-reinstated player’s attorney, Don Jackson, said he was sick and did not attend.

It’s the first time this season for MSU to drop a series as the team is 4-2 going into the series finale at 1:30 p.m. today at Dudy Noble Field.



Sir Swat rules land

Posted 2/26/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — History couldn’t be made on the road. It just wouldn’t have been right for Humphrey Coliseum to miss out on an NCAA record being broken.

MSU women show energy in victory

Posted 2/26/2010 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — One big hop is all Mary Kathryn Govero needs. When Govero is in rhythm and “feeling it,” she typically steps into her outside shot with a jump that gives her balance and allows her to get maximum lift. Thursday was one of those nights.

Posted 2/26/2010 in College Sports

Powers' blast in ninth lifts MSU

Posted 2/24/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — Down, but not out. That seems to be a theme for the Mississippi State University baseball team this season. For the third time in four games, MSU overcame a deficit, this time thanks to Luke Adkins and Connor Powers, who hit back-to-back solo home runs in the bottom of the ninth inning in a 6-5 victory against the University of Alabama-Birmingham on Tuesday night.



Bigger lineup gives Bulldogs another option

Posted 2/24/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — Apparently everyone in the Mississippi State University men’s basketball camp is fine with the lineup the Bulldogs use and when they use it. So long as the team is winning. In the past two games, the Bulldogs (19-8, 7-5 Southeastern Conference) have started a “big” lineup with Jarvis Varnado, Kodi Augustus and Romero Osby across the front line.

Posted 2/23/2010 in College Sports

STARKVILLE — Senioritis came on the wrong day for the Mississippi State women’s basketball team. With a chance to solidify its chances to earn a first-round bye to the Southeastern Conference Tournament next month in Duluth, Ga., the Lady Bulldogs played their most uninspired and unfocused game of the season. Alli Smalley and Auburn were only too happy to take advantage.



EMCC men face uncertainties

Posted 2/23/2010 in College Sports
