Good afternoon, Stark Vegas! This weekend was... interesting. Men’s basketball isn’t exactly off to a hot start, but other sports like men’s tennis and track and field are starting up for their seasons. But hey, women’s basketball is still a national championship contender, so not all is bad.
MBB drops first two SEC games
After a disappointing overtime loss to South Carolina, the Bulldogs followed with a close loss to Ole Miss. Quinndary Weatherspoon had 18 points and eight rebounds, Lamar Peters added 16 points and Nick Weatherspoon dropped 11. I’m not one to make any judgements, but unless things change soon, head coach Ben Howland’s seat is getting warmer.
Read our full recap of the Ole Miss game here.
Track and Field competes at Vulcan Invite
A few athletes set personal records, while others shattered State records. Reggie Miller set a personal record for high-jump at 2.15 meters, which also won the event. Peyton Mickelson, in her first collegiate event, broke the freshman record for pole vault at 3.5 meters.
Men’s Tennis wraps up Tempe Collegiate Cup
Three singles wins over Arizona State and one over TCU helped the Bulldogs get ready for its regular season. If you want to look at all of the results from both singles and doubles, click here.
WBB takes on Auburn
This game has the chance to be tricky. Auburn (14-2, 2-1 SEC), will host the No. 7 Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs. You can watch the game on the SEC Network, which will tip off at 6 p.m. CT.
Baseball ranked No. 14 in preseason poll
Eight SEC teams made D1 Baseball’s preseason poll. State comes in at No. 14.

Not much national stuff outside of the NFL playoffs moving on. The AFC Championship is New England vs. Kansas City and the NFC Championship is the Los Angeles Rams vs. New Orleans. What are your guys’ predictions? I say it’ll be New England vs. Los Angeles in the Super Bowl (don’t pin me to this, though, because I said Alabama would win the CFP).
Have a good day and Hail State!
