State Dominates Ole Miss Start To Finish In 70-60 Victory

From the opening tip off to the final horn, State dominated the action on the floor at Humphrey Coliseum Thursday night, defeating arch-nemesis Ole Miss 70-60. State was led by the tandem of Arnett Moultrie and Dee Bost, who used alley-oop after alley-oop after alley-oop to enforce their will against the Rebel alliance (okay, defense).

Moultrie finished with 18 points and 9 rebounds, one rebound shy of what would have been his 14th double double of the season. But the story tonight was really Dee, who was crisp in his passing the entire game, finishing with 13 assists, a career high.

In addition, Renardo Sidney had his most complete game of the season, chipping in 14 points in a season-high 27 minutes of action.

A crowd of 10,364 took the action in at the Hump tonight, the 12th largest home crowd in history. Again, have to state that since the challenge has been thrown out to fans, we have responded well with increased crowd energy and participation in the last two home games. Hope that keeps up.

State will take a quick one day break before returning to the Hump Saturday to finish out the 3-game home stand with Georgia. Tip-off is scheduled for 12:47 p.m. (EXACTLY)
