Bulldogs Move Up to #16

The Troy Trojans came to Humphrey Coliseum on Saturday as a 4-3 team who lead the nation in 3-pointers.  They left with their sword between their legs as MSU dominated them 106-68.  The Bulldogs basically toyed with them the entire game shooting 56.3%.  State tied a school record with 16 three pointers themselves and Bost, Moultrie, and Sidney all had over 20 points.  The result: Mississippi State is now #16 in the coaches poll and #17 in the AP, and look who’s atop the SEC standings:
