Posted 2/25/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Jesse McCord just wanted another chance. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound freshman right-hander from Spanish Fort, Alabama, made the most of it Tuesday afternoon. McCord rebounded from a disappointing debut in the Mississippi State baseball team's third game of the season to throw 5 2/3 innings in a 10-2 win against Alcorn State at Dudy Noble Field.

MSU men gearing up for No. 1 Kentucky

Posted 2/24/2015 in College Sports

Even if others were mistaken, John Calipari had no problem remembering who is next on the No. 1 Kentucky men's basketball team's schedule. As Calipari joined the Southeastern Conference's weekly basketball teleconference Monday morning, the conference call moderator introduced the Kentucky coach and said he and his team were preparing to face Texas A&M on Wednesday night. "I thought we were playing Mississippi State," Calipari said. "These goofballs have me watching Mississippi State tape. Should I go watch Texas A&M tape?"

Ole Miss women upset No. 13 Kentucky

Posted 2/24/2015 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Tia Faleru had a team-high 16 points, and Danielle McCray had 13 points and a career-high 15 rebounds for her first double-double of the season Monday night to lead the Ole Miss women's basketball team to a 67-59 victory against No. 13 Kentucky at Tad Smith Coliseum. The victory was the first for Ole Miss (16-11, 6-8 Southeastern Conference) against a top-15 team since 2009-10. It also marked the first time Ole Miss has defeated two ranked teams in the same season since the 2009-10 campaign.

 

 

MSU women beat Alabama to make history

Posted 2/23/2015 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Around 1 a.m. Sunday, Vic Schaefer and his Mississippi State women's basketball team were three hours into powerless pitch darkness. The team hotel had lost power ahead of MSU's 2 p.m. tip at Alabama, a team that, on paper, didn't pose the heavyweight threat MSU encountered at Kentucky and what it likely will face Thursday at Southeastern Conference co-leader South Carolina. When daybreak came, Schaefer knew his No. 14 Bulldogs would be in for a fight.

 

 

McKinney, Smith impress at NFL Combine

Posted 2/23/2015 in College Sports

Robson continues hot start at plate for Bulldogs

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- There is nothing about Mississippi State center fielder Jacob Robson that screams middle-of-the-order hitter. Maybe that's why it's working so well. Robson, a 5-foot-7, 160-pound speedster out of Windsor, Ontario, Canada, isn't a threat to hit a home runs. And with his slender build and contact-hitting approach, he doesn't seem like a typical run producer. But there he is, the sweet-hitting left-hander anchored at the No. 5 spot in MSU's batting order.

 

 

MSU softball team sweeps Penn State

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Samantha Ricketts started earning her keep very early as the new hitting coach for the Mississippi State softball team. Ricketts has instilled a positive attitude and a new belief system at the plate. Both have paid dividends early as MSU is off to a 12-1 start after a 9-3, 10-5 doubleheader sweep of Big Ten Conference foe Penn State on Saturday at the MSU Softball Field.

 

 

MSU can't pull upset of No. 18 Arkansas

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The opponent changes, but the results continue to stay the same for the Mississippi State men's basketball team. Two days after leading archrival Ole Miss for most of the game before falling in the end, MSU repeated that scenario Saturday against No. 18 Arkansas. Despite leading at halftime and for much of the second half, MSU endured a six-minute scoreless stretch in crunch time and never recovered in a 65-61 loss at Humphrey Coliseum.

 

 

MSU women have found right chemistry this season

Posted 2/21/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Chemistry has been a key ingredient in the success of the Mississippi State women's basketball team this season. Coaches never know how the personalities on each team will mix, but MSU coach Vic Schaefer hasn't had to worry about that dilemma. The only problem that has plagued Schaefer has been trying to find playing time for 14 talented players. Thanks to the willingness of those players to coexist and to challenge each other, MSU has secured a spot in both national polls (No. 14 in The Associated Press, No. 16 in USA Today) and has matched a program record for wins in a season with three regular-season games to go.
