Mississippi State basketball news and notes: Bulldogs drop SEC opener

Okay, so in terms of SEC play, things really didn’t start so well for the men’s Mississippi State basketball team.

Ben Howland’s Bulldogs suffered a pretty embarrassing loss last night to the South Carolina Gamecocks. The men’s Mississippi State basketball team lost to a struggling SEC opponent in overtime.

That’s not how you want to get the conference schedule started. But, well, it happened. There’s not much we can do about it at this point. The women’s basketball team will return to action tomorrow, so let’s start getting ready for that.

In case you missed it from Maroon and White Nation:

  • Ben Howland’s Bulldogs fall on road in SEC opener– This game was rough. There’s no other way to put it. South Carolina, up to this point, really hasn’t looked all that great. And they beat the Bulldogs in overtime. There’s still plenty of time for MSU to improve though.
  • Four Mississippi State football signees enroll early with MSU– All four of these guys could certaimly impact the future of Mississippi State football. There’s one guy who enrolled early that’ll grab some headlines though given the position he plays and who he is working to replace.

Let’s do some good:

Sarah Barnes’s Medical Expenses– The Barnes family is looking for help paying for their hospital bills after Sarah, a wife and mother and Mississippi State fan, became ill and was hospitalized. They need our help. Let’s do something, folks.

Mississippi State stuff from around the internetz:

  • Lamar Peters doesn’t appear too worried about the loss, which is probably good. If he, and the rest of the team can just simply shake it off and move on, the Bulldogs will probably be just fine.


Here, enjoy a song:

Okay, so Mississippi State didn’t win last night. In fact, the Bulldogs definitely lost. And, well, it’s bad when the Bulldogs definitely lose. Definitely losing is certainly worse than clearly winning, that’s for sure.
