Friday afternoon, the Mississippi State men’s basketball team handled the Nicholls Colonels. Here’s three observations from the Mississippi State basketball win.
Chris Jans and his Mississippi State basketball team were able to improve to 6-0 on Friday as the MSU men’s basketball team managed to get a solid 74-61 win over the Nicholls Colonels. The win was great to see from MSU and it was clear that the Bulldogs have a number of different contributors that can help elevate this team when needed.
Things may have been closer than what some Mississippi State men’s basketball fans were hoping for, but the strong start from the Bulldogs in the Hump made it impossible for Nicholls to overcome.
And thus, MSU is now 6-0 on the season. Pretty good place to be right now, especially considering that one of the best players in the SEC is still injured.
Mississippi State basketball: 3 thoughts on Bulldogs’ win over Nicholls
Here are three observations from the comfortable Mississippi State basketball home victory in the Hump on Friday:
The Bulldogs weren’t sharp in their shooting from 3, but that didn’t impact the end result
The Mississippi State men’s basketball team hasn’t been great at shooting threes in recent history and that’s something that hopefully changes a bit this season and as Chris Jans continues to build this program.
But thankfully, it didn’t matter too much that the Bulldogs only managed to go 5-for-23 from behind the three point line. The Bulldogs still controlled this game and won by double digits. When it’s all said and done, that’s something to be proud of.
Now, I’d like it if MSU managed to hit more three pointers, but I’ll take MSU basketball wins any way I can get them.
What’s a bit more concerning than issues behind the arc is how MSU only made 63 percent of its free throws. I’d like that to be addressed sooner rather than later.
