MSU women ready to put expectations to the test

Posted 11/14/2014 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- It's time to put the expectations to the test. The Mississippi State women's basketball team has been looking forward to a new campaign ever since it suffered a season-ending loss to South Florida in the quarterfinals of the Women's National Invitation Tournament on March 30. While the postseason run -- the program's first since a trip to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament in 2010 -- reflected the growth of the players in the second year under coach Vic Schaefer and his staff, the Bulldogs had even more to be excited about considering a talented recruiting class led by Victoria Vivians, the state's all-time leading high school scorer, was on its way.

Posted 11/14/2014 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The stakes have increased each week in the Mississippi State football team's 9-0 start to the season. It started with a 34-29 win at then-No. 8 LSU on Sept. 20, and continued through a two-game home stretch that included victories against then-No. 6 Texas A&M and then-No. 2 Auburn. Along the way, the Bulldogs have stretched their winning streak to 12 games, climbed to the top of the Southeastern Conference's Western Division, and ascended to No. 1 in the two major national polls.

MSU's Richardson could see bigger role at new position

Posted 11/10/2014 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- As a point guard, Jerica James knows how to direct traffic. The senior is familiar with all of the hand signals and the subtle eye maneuvers that allow teammates to work their magic without using words.

I got this."

 

 

No. 1 MSU turns page to Alabama

Posted 11/10/2014 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- In the moments after leading the Mississippi State football team to its first 9-0 start in program history, coach Dan Mullen wasn't peppered with questions about a 45-16 victory against Tennessee-Martin on Homecoming. Mullen wasn't asked repeatedly about quarterback Dak Prescott, who had for three touchdowns and 260 yards. He wasn't pestered to reflect on No. 1 MSU's historic winning streak, which moved to 12 games, the second-best active run in the country. Instead, Mullen and each MSU player who met with the media Saturday night was asked often about one thing: MSU's game against Alabama on Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
