Good afternoon, Stark Vegas: Men’s basketball wins in the weirdest way

It was unbelievable how Mississippi State defeated Georgia.

The Clarion-Ledger

Good afternoon, Stark Vegas! If you haven’t heard, men’s basketball defeated Georgia in the weirdest way. I’ve seen some wild endings, but this one is for sure near the top of the “weird endings to games” rankings

Men’s Basketball escapes Georgia 68-67

After a Georgia three-pointer tied things at 67, Quinndary Weatherspoon went down the court and was fouled with 0.5 seconds left. After missing the first free throw, a Georgia fan launched an object onto the court. A technical foul was called on Georgia, giving Weatherspoon an extra shot. He sank the next one and missed his final one, but UGA couldn’t get a full-court shot off, helping State win by one.

Weatherspoon had 31 points, a career-high for him, Reggie Perry added 12 and Tyson Carter had 11. Next up for the Bulldogs is South Carolina.

(Side note: My ESPN notifications were confusing. It’d say “Halftime: Bulldogs lead the Bulldogs 36-24. They can’t pick that up and put “MSU” or something?)

Softball defeats Alabama State

Two home runs from the Lady Bulldogs lifted them to a 3-1 win over Alabama State. Candace Denis had five strikeouts on the day.

Baseball escapes UAB

A three-run seventh inning helped Mississippi State escape an upset. Dustin Skelton and Jake Mangum had RBIs to complete the comeback and move No. 9 MSU to 4-0 on the season.

Women’s basketball has a big one tonight against Ole Miss. Tune in to the SEC Network at 7 p.m. to watch. Have a good day and Hail State!
