The Ben Howland Era officially starts play tonight.

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Mississippi State basketball will play its first official game of the Bem Howland Era when Eastern Washington comes to town for a 8:05pm tip in Starkville.

The Eagles bring some talent, having made the NCAA tournament last year as the Big Sky Conference Tournament Champions.

For MSU, Malik Newman is not expected to play significant minutes as he recuperates from injury.

For those wanting to watch, the game will be on the SEC Network.

Are you excited? How do you feel about the game?
