MSU uses size advantage to beat MVSU

Posted 11/18/2014 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- It was a tale of two halves. Mississippi State men's basketball coach Rick Ray loved the first half of his team's game against Mississippi Valley State on Monday night. Ray watched his Bulldogs shoot 69 percent from the field and score 58 points -- the most in his three-year tenure at the school. But Ray didn't like the second half in which MSU committed 19 of a season-high 26 turnovers.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- On a day when MSU quarterback Dak Prescott couldn't overcome his early struggles and lead No. 1 Mississippi State to a comeback victory, it was No. 5 Alabama's quarterback who turned in a game-clinching performance in the fourth quarter.

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.
