STARKVILLE -- Through four games, sophomore center fielder Jacob Robson owns the hottest start of any Mississippi State baseball player. He also owns the first national award for a Bulldog this season.
STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State softball team couldn't come all of the way back from a four-run deficit Sunday in a 4-3 loss to Illinois on the final day of the February Freezer at the MSU Softball Field. The game, which capped five games in four days, left MSU at 9-1, while Illinois improved to 3-7.
STARKVILLE -- The No. 13 Mississippi State women's basketball team shook off a slow start to roll past Florida 75-62 in a Southeastern Conference game Sunday at the Humphrey Coliseum. No. 13 MSU trailed by eight points in the early stages of the first half. The Bulldogs took control late in the first half and led 40-30 at halftime. The lead grew to as many as 21 in the second half. With the win, MSU improved to 24-4 and 9-4 in the SEC. MSU matched the school record for wins in a season with 24 and home wins with a 16-1 record at Humphrey Coliseum.
STARKVILLE -- It's not surprising that the Mississippi State baseball team won its first four games this weekend to start the season. The only surprising part is how easily MSU did it. Starting with a 6-2 victory against Cincinnati on Friday night, MSU wasn't challenged in its four-game stretch against Cincinnati or Miami University. MSU's dominance started to take hold Saturday in 7-1 win against Miami. It built on that effort later in the day in a 19-5 win against Cincinnati. On Sunday, MSU put that exclamation point on the sweep with a 16-7 victory against Cincinnati at Dudy Noble Field.
STARKVILLE -- Nearly a full day after it put the finishing touches on a 77-74 win at Missouri on Saturday, the Mississippi State's men's basketball team staggered back into Humphrey Coliseum a little after 3 p.m. Sunday. The Bulldogs had a story to tell.
STARKVILLE - Jacob Robson wasn't surprised at all.
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Mississippi State coach Rick Ray said Saturday he doesn't care how his team wins on the road, just so long as it does. Still, he would like the Bulldogs to play better when holding a lead.
STARKVILLE - For a man just days away from the biggest job interview of his life, Preston Smith seems relatively relaxed.
STARKVILLE -- The statute of limitations for members of the Mississippi State women's basketball team to think about "moral" victories no longer exists.
STARKVILLE -- I.J. Ready was understandably frustrated, and it showed.
STARKVILLE -- You name it, D'Antae Bush can do it.
LEXINGTON, Ky. - A putback by Kentucky's Makayla Epps with 0.4 seconds left to play broke Mississippi State's hearts Thursday night.
STARKVILLE -- Time and again, Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen has asserted his belief in MSU's stable of starting pitchers heading into the 2015 season.
Oh, the possibilities. It's easy to get lost in the numbers when you consider the ramifications of the No. 13 Mississippi State women's basketball team's game at 6 tonight (SEC Network) against No. 10 Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky.
STARKVILLE -- Some things never change. That's why members of the Mississippi State baseball team aren't shying away from the expectations many have for this season's squad.
STARKVILLE -- The bad times are back for the Mississippi State men's basketball team. Following a three-week stretch that saw MSU win four of six Southeastern Conference games, coach Rick Ray's team suffered a 55-51 loss to Alabama on Tuesday night before an announced crowd of 6,386 at Humphrey Coliseum.
STARKVILLE -- The hard part might be over for Michael Smith. Smith, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound speedster who transferred from Walters State (Tenn.) Community College, admits his first few months as a member of the Mississippi State baseball team was a struggle. But Smith has figured it out.
STARKVILLE -- First things first, Savannah Carter tried to call timeout with the Mississippi State women's basketball team nursing a one-point lead against Texas A&M in overtime Sunday. But you never know when you're going to have an equipment malfunction, or when your mouthpiece is going to get stuck in your mouth and render it impossible for you to say the word -- TIMEOUT -- everyone wants you to deliver before you commit a turnover with the game on the line.
STARKVILLE -- It was a no-doubter. For Reid Humphreys, Mississippi State's sophomore left-fielder to be, the team's Jan. 31 scrimmage was a showcase. Stepping to the plate on a mild, windy day, Humphreys opened the scoring with a mammoth solo home run to left field. The blast landed steps away from a building the houses restrooms far behind the Left Field Lounge at Dudy Noble Field.
STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State's men's basketball team has followed each step forward with a step in the opposite direction. That was the case Saturday in a 61-41 loss at Arkansas in which MSU scored nine first-half points. For a team that had won four if its past six games, the stumble was disheartening.
