NOTES: In the 106 years and 2,554 total games of Mississippi State basketball, it has never played Green Bay. MSU will do the same in it games against Stephen F. Austin, North Dakota State and North Florida...Green Bay operates at a wildly fast tempo -- seventh-fastest in the nation according to KenPom...MSU has held opponents to 26.7 percent shooting from 3-point range, which ranks in the top 50 nationally...Green Bay's incredible rebounding margin this year is a product of small sample size -- it outrebounded Lakeland in its last game 71-32...MSU's bench is averaging 38 points per game...Green Bay is in the early goings of replacing eight players from last year's roster.
