Posted 2/11/2017 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Simultaneous, yet contradictory, excitement and anxiety overtake coaches' meetings rooms on National Signing Day.

No. 19 South Carolina uses late push to beat MSU

Posted 2/11/2017 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- As counterintuitive as it sounds, it was a switch to zone that stymied the Mississippi State men's basketball team's hot shooting. After a 8-for-15 3-point barrage in the first half and a 22-point surge off the bench from freshman guard Tyson Carter, South Carolina's defensive switch inspired a 9-0 run in the final five minutes and helped it earn a 77-73 victory at Humphrey Coliseum.

Instead, White was clinical in breaking down the worst beatdown MSU (24-1, 10-1 Southeastern Conference) has given Vanderbilt (11-13, 1-10).

 

MSU men will look for faster start vs. No. 19 South Carolina

Posted 2/10/2017 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State men's basketball team's ability to mount a comeback is undeniable. In the last week, MSU erased a 19-point deficit to beat Tennessee and turned a 21-point deficit into a six-point loss at Auburn. MSU's next step: avoid the deficit that precedes the second-half surges of late. The search for answers will continue at 7 p.m. Saturday when MSU (14-9, 5-6 Southeastern Conference) plays host to No. 19 South Carolina (19-5, 9-2) at Humphrey Coliseum.

Posted 2/8/2017 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Consider the lesson learned. For the last two seasons, Vic Schaefer had to listen to all of the pundits talk about the strength of his team's non-conference schedule. The Mississippi State women's basketball coach didn't care for much of the talk. He made his case to dispute the fact the Bulldogs had played weak non-conference schedules with too many games against opponents in the lower regions of Division I.

STARKVILLE -- Turns out Ben Howland was right. Mississippi State's men's basketball coach pestered his team to rebound in a stretch of four losses in five games prior to a matchup against Tennessee on Saturday at Humphrey Coliseum.
