Repetition key word for MSU women

Posted 1/25/2014 in College Sports

Repetition is the word for the Mississippi State women's basketball team. Coming off an 87-85 overtime loss to Ole Miss on Thursday in which coach Vic Schaefer blamed himself for not getting his team home down the stretch, the Bulldogs spent the past two days working on execution in late-game situations. MSU re-visited the play calls from the huddle at the end of regulation and at the end of overtime that gave the Bulldogs a chance to beat the Rebels but didn't work. Schaefer then had his players watch those situations on film before they took the court for practice in an attempt to understand exactly how to get the best possible shot.

 

 

Road woes continue for MSU men

OXFORD -- Rick Ray needed just three words to describe the Mississippi State men's basketball team's trip to Tad Smith Coliseum on Saturday night. "We didn't compete," Ray said with his head down.

 

 

Ray sits starters for lack of effort

Posted 1/25/2014 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Rick Ray finally had enough Saturday. With 16 minutes, 9 seconds remaining in the game, the MSU second-year men's basketball coach looked down his bench and was desperate to find five players who wanted to play with effort at Ole Miss. He said he wasn't trying to send a message when he substituted his five starters, but it may have been interpreted as one in an 82-63 loss at Tad Smith Coliseum.

 

 

Ole Miss gets first SEC win vs. MSU

Posted 1/24/2014 in College Sports

OXFORD -- The next play. It sounds simple to be able to put a bad play or consecutive mistakes behind you. Truth be told, Kenyotta Jenkins wouldn't have been able to do that a year ago. The old Jenkins likely would have put her head down after being picked on by an opponent and let her play affect her performance and the play of her teammates. If that was still the case, Matt Insell still would be looking for his first Southeastern Conference victory.

 

 

Schaefer takes blame for loss to Ole Miss

Posted 1/24/2014 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Vic Schaefer took one for the team Thursday night. The Mississippi State second-year women's basketball coach accepted the blame for not putting his squad in position to close a victory against archrival Ole Miss. Leading by as many as 11 points in the second half and by seven with a little more than four minutes left in regulation, MSU couldn't deliver the knockout blow and allowed Kenyotta Jenkins to score on an offensive rebound putback with 0.8 seconds to go in overtime that gave Ole Miss an 87-85 victory before a crowd of 1,107 at Tad Smith Coliseum.
