Another Year, another Sweet Sixteen for the Mississippi State Bulldogs! MSU dominated Troy in their first game of the Starkville Regional 110-69, before handling a very good DePaul team 92-71 on Sunday. Mississippi State improves to 31-4 on the year and will take on the winner of Washington vs Oklahoma Friday Night in Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

A 14-0 3rd Quarter Run pushed the Bulldogs to the win. Mississippi State Out Rebounded DePaul 48-26.

Blair Schaefer led the way with 18 points. 6 Bulldogs reached Double Digit Scoring while Shooting 49.3% from the Field.

The Oklahoma City Regional will be held Friday March 24th at 6 PM and Sunday March 26th at 6:30 PM. Should the Bulldogs win the Oklahoma City Regional, they will be heading to the Final Four in Dallas Texas. Mississippi State has never reached the Elite Eight and this will be their Third time playing in the Sweet Sixteen. No matter who MSU faces on Friday, it won’t be worse than last years Sweet Sixteen Game(hehe).

It appears to have turned into a Mississippi State Sports Weekend in Oklahoma City. The Softball Team is headed Friday Night to Face Defending National Champion Oklahoma in Norman, before playing UAB in Oklahoma City Saturday at 12 PM. This game will be held ASA Hall of Fame Stadium. The site of the Women’s College World Series.

We will have In Depth Previews of Every Team in the Oklahoma City Regional this on FWtCT this week. And FWtCT will be at Chesapeake Energy Arena to give you a first hand look of what is happening in a very Historic season for Mississippi State Sports.
