Big Weekend, & the Week Ahead


We learned Saturday night that the Mississippi State men’s basketball team could be a big factor in the SEC this season. Sunday showed us that the Lady Bulldogs might make some noise, too.

They overcame an 18-point deficit to defeat Ole Miss, 69-64. MSU (13-3, 1-1 SEC) got 19 points from the resurgent Alexis Rack, and three others notched double digits. Up next is an even stiffer test: No. 7 Tennessee, which is stinging from yesterday’s 74-58 loss to No. 24 Vanderbilt. An angry Pat Summitt is even scarier than a happy Pat Summitt.

As for what else is ahead this week, we’ll have the SEC coaches on the phone later this morning, and then the media will assemble in Starkville this afternoon to speak with men’s coach Rick Stansbury and a few players. The Bulldogs (11-5, 1-0) return home Wednesday against Alabama (11-4, 1-0), which knocked off LSU on Sunday, 65-59.

And at some point this week, we hope to catch up with football coach Dan Mullen, who today kicks off a five-city meet-and-greet tour around the region.

    Alexis Rack? She’s gotta make it to the nba with a last name like that? Either that or the porn industry.
