Mississippi State 78, Kennesaw State 55

The Bulldogs are off to a 2-0 start after beating Kennesaw State (from northwest Atlanta) 78-55. Fred Thomas returned from his NCAA suspension and lead the team with 17 points. Gavin Ware just missed his second straight double-double as he had 9 points and 10 rebounds.

The big story is the health status of I.J. Ready who went down with an injury in the 2nd half. We do not know the severity of the injury, but State can ill-afford to have a starter of his caliber go down.

Jacoby Davis saw the first action of his MSU career in the final minutes – he was out all last year with a torn ACL.

Four Bulldogs hit double figures in scoring: Borchert, Thomas, Sword and Bloodman. More: Bulldog Blitz’ recap.
