Rough half for MSU


At the break, Oregon is holding a commanding 38-28 lead.

One reason why is the Ducks’ accuracy from 3-point range, where they are 7 of 17.

Another reason is the Bulldogs’ inability to hit anything behind the arc.

Try ZERO for 10.

Rebound wise, it’s pretty even, with the Ducks holding 19-18 advantage.

If State is to have a chance in the second half, Charles Rhodes is going to need some help. He’s got 16, while Jarvis Varnado and Jamont Gordon each have five. Ben Hansbrough is next with two, and that’s it for the scoring.

Hansbrough, Stewart and Gordon are a combined 0-of-8 shooting from 3-point range. Then there’s Oregon’sTajuan Porter, who has hit 3 of his 6 attempts, while Malik Hairston has drained two.

    Wow hard to comment on those stats. Way to go Rhodes!

  2. judwe Says:

    Commanding lead is right…. never did a 10pt lead seem so huge.

  3. judwe Says:

    Jarvis is bringing it as well.

    I now HATE the “motion” offense.

  4. judwe Says:

    They just showed Bryce Drew’s shot from 10 years ago… it will NEVER go away,

  5. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    I thinks it’s SLOW MOTION in our case

  6. judwe Says:

    LOL… or “No Emotion”

  7. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    So do you think we’ll be oregons little red headed step child this half, or will we come alive like frankenstein ?

  8. judwe Says:

    Come alive? This is the NCAAT. Maybe we will realize that fact in the next 20 minutes or so.

  9. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    I’m gonna be hopeful and say that Stan’s was able to awake the sleeping beast at half…..

  10. judwe Says:


  11. judwe Says:

    Like I said before… I hope we see Ravern, Phil… even Riley this half if Ben and Barry keep practicing masonry.

  12. dadawg Says:

    I would start five different players in the second half to shake things up…

  13. judwe Says:

    I wouldn’t take Charles or Jarvis out.

  14. Gregg Ellis Says:

    well, judwe, Phil is like 0 for his last 50.

  15. judwe Says:

    perhaps Gregg he will be motivated

  16. Gregg Ellis Says:

    I’m going to guess this isn’t the way MSU wanted to start the half.

  17. dadawg Says:

    What in the world is going on with Jamont?

  18. judwe Says:


  19. Gregg Ellis Says:

    True, judwe. I guess at some point a slump has to come to an end.

  20. judwe Says:

    You just have to love Varnado

  21. judwe Says:

    probably at the Sanderson Center unfortunately

  22. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Hey, a run. How about that.

  23. Gregg Ellis Says:

    And for a break from basketball . . . USC is up 7-0 on the Bulldogs in baseball. OK. Back to basketball.

  24. warbirdz44 Says:

    Well at least Charles came to play. The rest of the team, as well as the coach, is teh suck.

  25. judwe Says:


  26. judwe Says:

    I don’t think you can blame this one on Stan’s, and this is coming from someone who has been critical of him in the past. 0% free throw shooting will kill you against anyone…. not to mention the Oregon Ducks.

  27. theconquistador Says:

    I know how “good” Gordon is but in the first half he HURT us way more than he helped. He’ll be back next year.

  28. judwe Says:

    I meant 0% 3pt shooting

  29. judwe Says:

    Jarvis (!)

  30. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Hey! A 3-pointer. Barry Stewart ends MSU’s 0-for-11 drought.

  31. judwe Says:

    “Heartaches by the Number”


  32. judwe Says:

    FINALLY !!!

  33. judwe Says:

    Junk call on Varnado

  34. carwwest Says:

    i just dont understand how we can be that bad shooting the ball in the last couple games… would think somebody on the bench could hit one of 11!!

  35. judwe Says:

    We have to, somehow, get a friggin stop

  36. dadawg Says:

    Jamont is having a terrible time…

  37. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Jamont looks like he’s la la land.

  38. judwe Says:

    I’ll be the first….Welcome back Jamont!

  39. bedgood Says:

    Rhodes is going to have 30 in a losing effort.

  40. judwe Says:

    i get the feeling we still have a rally in us.

  41. warbirdz44 Says:

    I don’t.

  42. judwe Says:

    Vanderbilt is down 14 to Sienna with @ 10 minutes to go

  43. judwe Says:

    Bird, there has to be a rally for the heartbreak to really sting

  44. bedgood Says:

    THAT is more like it!!!

  45. warbirdz44 Says:

    Bout freakin time!

  46. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Well, sports fans. It’s a one-possession game all of a sudden thanks to Barry Stewart’s second 3 in the last three minutes.

  47. bedgood Says:

    Why does everybody else’s coaching staff call a time out when the opposing team is on the verge of a run besides OURS!?!?

  48. thespear Says:

    Barry has found the R H Y T H M

    Can you say switch in momentum!!!!

  49. judwe Says:

    SEE !!! I told you so.

  50. bedgood Says:

    And how does Oregon have such hot cheerleaders??

  51. judwe Says:

    We now have to get STOPS

    Wish we had Derrick Zimmerman about right now.

  52. Gregg Ellis Says:

    bedgood, best I’ve seen this year.

  53. judwe Says:


  54. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    We’re Back, YES, my beers are tasting better, too.

  55. warbirdz44 Says:

    Nice run guys!

  56. judwe Says:

    Vanderbilt down 14 with 7:00 left

    WOW, Sienna.

  57. judwe Says:

    There you go Barry

  58. dadawg Says:

    Here come the DAWGS

  59. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    They finally sent one of the munchkin’s 3’s packing

  60. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Are you kidding me. the Dogs are rolling.

  61. judwe Says:

    J A R V I S

  62. thespear Says:

    Now this is what as known as Mississippi State Basketball

    Barry swishes the three Rhodes rocks the rim!!!

    And Varnado sends opposing shots to the moon!

    Go dawgs

  63. judwe Says:

    V A R N A D O

  64. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Their point guard looks like a little leprechaun in that green suit

  65. judwe Says:

    LEUNEN with 4 !!!

  66. bedgood Says:

    Looks like we may have weathered the storm. I hope Oregon doesn’t turn it back on

  67. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    How many does SWAT have now?

  68. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Rick is giving the refs a stare down to die for.

  69. warbirdz44 Says:

    4. And that was all friggen ball.

  70. thespear Says:

    He needs to save Jarvis , as much as i hate to say it! Hope Bailey and Johnson can combine for a solid few min

  71. tupelopixdotcom Says:


  72. judwe Says:

    For the first time this yer… now would be the time to actuslly do something called building a lead.

  73. judwe Says:

    I forgot how to “speall”

  74. Gregg Ellis Says:

    There has been no substitution this half. I guess with the 20-minute timeouts, you can do that.

  75. warbirdz44 Says:


  76. judwe Says:

    Jarvis had a couple of cheap ones called on him early IMHO #3 & #4

  77. bedgood Says:

    Varnado has 4

  78. judwe Says:

    make that #2 and #3

  79. dadawg Says:

    Substitution what is that? And we’re gonna save our timeouts too..heh

  80. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    69% second half field goal %–NICE!

  81. judwe Says:

    Vandy down to “Reddish brown” by 14 with @ 4 remaining

  82. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    TERRIBLE call on Jamont

  83. dadawg Says:

    We are not getting the calls now…

  84. judwe Says:

    J A M O N Y ….. bullcrap call !!!!!

  85. thingreenline Says:

    I hope Stans is giving those Pac-10 refs an earful

  86. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Shan Foster can bring ’em back with 6 3’s in a row

  87. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Good play Johnson!

  88. bedgood Says:

    Gordon couldn’t hit the ocean at the end of the pier

  89. Gregg Ellis Says:

    One of the officials is from the SEC.

  90. farley662 Says:

    I hate green.

  91. thespear Says:

    Wow some calls going our way=awesome!

    For the first time, I see some passion from all five guys on floor

  92. dadawg Says:

    Confidence Barry confidence…

  93. judwe Says:

  94. farley662 Says:

  95. thingreenline Says:

  96. bedgood Says:

    Jamont is as cold as I have seen him.

  97. Gregg Ellis Says:

    Hey, welcome back Farley.

  98. dadawg Says:

    Free throws?

  99. thespear Says:

    Free throws are too important to miss

  100. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    We’ve gone haywire on the charity stripe

  101. judwe Says:

    the rim on their end (ours in the first half) is TIGHT !!!

  102. bedgood Says:

    I believe there is a lot of sucking to go around tonight

  104. tupelopixdotcom Says:

  105. bedgood Says:

    Bye Bye!!

  106. dadawg Says:

    And the muscle goes to the bench

  107. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Yeah they must have installed a virgin rim on that end

  108. judwe Says:

    THUG !!!

  109. thespear Says:

    With the big man out, take it to the rim!

  110. farley662 Says:

    Thanks GG. Barry Stewart is the Ed Orgeron of college basketball players.

    The announcer just said Jamont has been laying the meat all day long! Hahaha!

  111. dadawg Says:

    Maybe that will wake Jamont up…

  112. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Rhodes says Get that crap outta here

  113. farley662 Says:

    The meat laying?

  114. thingreenline Says:

    Is it just me, or does it seem that every time we play somewhere that has a considerable amount of press, Jamont chokes.

  115. farley662 Says:

    Maybe Jamont doesn’t like meat.

  116. maxdawg Says:

    40 Rhodes

  178. dadawg Says:

  179. maxdawg Says:

    Give it to Begley

  180. farley662 Says:

    Tell em you’re sports writer.

    And BTW GG, PA’s answer was at least honest to the football thing. Scapegoating SOB!

  181. dadawg Says:

    Are we still saving our timeouts?

  182. judwe Says:

    WAY to GO DAWGS !!!

  183. dadawg Says:

    Somebody’s gonna get hurt now

  184. tupelopixdotcom Says:

    Wrap it in Maroon BEOTCHS!

  185. Gregg Ellis Says:

    farley, I was honest too.

  186. hailstate Says:

    I don’t care if Rhodes carves the whole solar system on his head if it helps him score 30+.

  187. judwe Says:

    Here’s hoping Barry has “officially” found his groove

  188. farley662 Says:

    Just giving ya the business GG. Enjoy your lonely Easter you lucky big headed fella you!

  189. hailstate Says:

    Rhodes played the whole game, everybody else showed up with 15:00 left. Maybe it will carry over.

  190. farley662 Says:

    I’ll eat a Cadbury egg for ya on Sunday.

  195. maxdawg Says:

    GG if u get a chance tell me if you can buy tickets at the Arena in Arky. I’ve got somewhere to stay that’s just 20 min. from Little Rock.

  196. maxdawg Says:

    Good coaching job by Stans with his BEST PLAYERS hitting bricks.

  197. Gregg Ellis Says:

    maxdawg, you’ll have to purchase them through a scalper. I’m sure that won’t be a problem with three teams now done.

  198. Gregg Ellis Says:

    hey farely, I like those Cadburys.

  199. farley662 Says:

    Me too. The fat wife ate one the other day without offering me a bite. Right after I just spent $500 on her dumpy little self! Stupid preggers!

  200. farley662 Says:

    Had to buy her a new laptop for work. Women suck sometimes, and not in the good way!

  201. judwe Says:

    What if Memphis blows round 1 (not likely) it would be a home game on Sunday

  202. bulldoggirl Says:

    Dang you, farley! I’m addicted to Cadbury eggs,and I’m out.

  203. farley662 Says:
