Stansbury Update: Viral Infection


MSU basketball coach Rick Stansbury has been diagnosed with a viral infection, and it’s not known when he will be released from North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. Here’s the full press release:

Mississippi State men’s basketball coach Rick Stansbury has been diagnosed as having a viral infection, according to team physician, Dr. Mike Mabry.

On Sunday night, the 11th-year coach was admitted to the Oktibbeha County Hospital after complaining of severe headaches and flu-like symptoms. On Monday morning, he was transported to the Northeast Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo for further tests.

At this time, it is not known when he will be released from the hospital or if he will be able to make the trip to Cincinnati on Wednesday in preparation for the Bulldogs’ 5:30 p.m. ESPN2 showdown against the Bearcats in the SEC/Big East Challenge.

In his absence, associate head coach Robert Kirby has assumed the day-to-day operations of the team.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Coach Stansbury and his family, and we look forward to him having a speedy recovery and returning to the team,” MSU athletics director Greg Byrne said. “At the same time, while he is away I know the team is in good hands with his staff and that they will continue to move forward.”

    Oh, ok. Wasn’t sure how I really felt about it. Now, does anyone know anyone who worked for the team who might be able to shed some light on the subject? 🙂
