Good afternoon, Stark Vegas! It’s a slow week for MSU athletics as there aren’t many games, but luckily there hasn’t been any losses. Next up is men’s basketball playing at Dayton, which will be tricky.
WBB rolls past Little Rock
After the first quarter, Little Rock led the Lady Bulldogs 14-13. Then, things went back to what was expected. They didn’t get 100, but State went on to win 98-63. Teaira McCowan had 23 points and 15 rebounds and four others added 10+ points. Next up is at Texas on Sunday, which will be a good test for Vic Schaefer’s team.
That’s the only result from yesterday involving a Mississippi State team. Again, it’s been a slow week. Let’s get into the national stuff.
Jeff Brohm is staying at Purdue
Louisville loses out on a hometown coach as the Boilermakers head coach Jeff Brohm decided to remain in West Lafayette, Indiana. Reports are saying the Cardinals are now trying to get Appalachian State head coach Scott Satterfield, and also are looking at Cincinnati’s Luke Fickell (please no), Troy’s Neal Brown and Ohio State’s offensive coordinator Ryan Day.
NJCAA National Championship tonight
No. 1 East Mississippi Community College will face No. 2 Garden City Community College in tonight’s national championship. Garden City won the title in 2016, while EMCC is going for its second consecutive title.
Michigan routs North Carolina
It’s time to realize that Michigan is a basketball school. The Wolverines beat UNC 84-67 and they’re building a great resume to be a national title contender.
Other than the Saints playing the Cowboys tonight (8:20 p.m. ET on FOX), there’s nothing really happening tonight on a national scale.
Have a good day and Hail State!
