The weather outside is starting to feel like you should be walking over to the hump on a random Tuesday night in Starkville, MS. Basketball season is quickly approaching and many fans are excited for the first time in a while.

The college basketball preseason AP poll was released on Monday morning and the Bulldogs dropped in at #18. It feels good to see our men’s basketball team back in the polls.

Ben Howland enters into his fourth season as the Bulldogs head coach and is looking to make a run for the NCAA tournament. After finishing last season in the final four of the NIT, there are some high hopes around Starkville for this 2018 squad.

With returning starters to talented freshmen, this team has the potential to do something special this year and it’s going to be fun to watch.

Let’s pack the Humphrey Coliseum this year and make it one of the toughest places to play in the country.

Hail State!
