Hype Around Men’s Hoops

New, 6 comments

Mississippi State basketball is now 8-0 and has already started to look forward to a difficult matchup against number 17 Cincinnati. The Bulldogs dominated North Georgia 95-62 on Saturday night. The dawgs looked the best they have looked all year, even though this was against a sub-par North Georgia team. Quinndary Weatherspoon led the team with 22 points, 2 assists, and 2 rebounds.

Weatherspoon has finally started to find his rhythm on the court, and he couldn’t have picked a better time to find it. Q will have to get started quickly against a Cincinnati team that is expected to make the tournament. Q won’t be the only one that will need to catch fire quickly on Tuesday night when the bulldogs have to go to Cincinnati, Ohio in a tough environment.

Ben Howland has these dawgs on the move right now. Mississippi State basketball is now 1 of 7 NCAA teams left that are undefeated. No, the bulldogs are not ranked, but it’s nearly guaranteed they will break the AP top 25 if they upset Cincinnati. It’s been a long time since the hype has been this high for Mississippi State men’s basketball, and the dawgs plan to keep it alive on Tuesday night.
