The Bulldogs get a solid victory at the Hump on Saturday over the school up north, 76-72! State improved to 11-4 (1-1) on the year, OM is now 10-5.
Despite some mediocre 3-point shooting that kept the Rebels around, MSU played tough defense as per the usual and secured the win late at the free throw line. The Dawgs have up an 8 point lead in the 2nd half but quickly battled back.
Ole Miss and winning in at the Hump just arn’t used in the same sentence so my apologies for doing so now. MSU is 28-3 since 1984, and have now won 15 of 16 in Starkville over the Rebs.
P.S. D’Runnya Wilson was on the bench, not dressed out. It appears he will play for the basketball team this year.
