In this Q&A with Joe Lunardi, Chris Dortch asked him about Mississippi State's chances to make the big dance. Here's the excerpt:
Dortch: "Did Mississippi State's win at South Carolina on Wednesday night allow the Bulldogs, who had lost five straight, to breathe a little easier?"
Lunardi: "Just a little. It was a game that could do far more harm than good. The Bulldogs still have work to do and, in my view, need at least two more wins to feel comfortable about their NCAA prospects."
Currently, Lunardi has MSU as a '11' seed.
