MSU starts off shooting 1-of-8, but winning the battle of the boards. 7-4, LSU, 15:40.

Fatboy

13-12 Dogs

Several stupid turnovers by Beckham/Bost and a missed dunk by Turner gives LSU 25-18 lead, 6:59.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 08:34 PM
And yet another stupid turnover, this time by Ravern.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 08:39 PM
Quick MSU run, LSU leads 27-23 with 3:46 remaining in the half.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 08:44 PM
Cold shooting for the Bulldogs. Not a good thing.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 08:46 PM
State just can't hit anything. 9-of-28 from the floor, down 31-26, 35.5 sec til half.

Fatboy
02-11-2009, 08:49 PM
31-26 Not bad considering how bad we played so far

MSUado
02-11-2009, 08:52 PM
32.6% for MSU compared to 44% for LSU and we are 25% from three while they are 50%. We need to really turn these numbers around to make a run.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 08:55 PM
Bost must just not like playing LSU. 1-5 3 points 3 to's and 1 assist.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 08:57 PM
State is a second-half team, and Varnado will have a chance to recover from foul trouble...so perhaps MSU has some fight left.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:09 PM
Bost just missed the most wide-open layup I've ever seen in my life. Wow.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:09 PM
Not a great start. Jarvis with 3 fouls. I don't like the feel of this game. Ravern has been way off.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:12 PM
One of the worst calls I've EVER seen just got called on Temple. Foul called and his body was about 5 feet away and his hand clearly hit all ball. Lucky break for MSU.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:13 PM

How are you watching this?

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:17 PM
LSU is really knocking down the threes. And finally Ravern got one.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:20 PM
I'm at at the game, ado.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:21 PM

i see. I'm jealous.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:22 PM
Crowd getting into it. State has to keep LSU from scoring...LSU is knocking down EVERYthing.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:23 PM
i see. I'm jealous.

It's an intense one...ha. Good one to be at.

Fatboy
02-11-2009, 09:24 PM
Bost 1-5, Ravern 1-3, Barry 0-2, Turner 0-2 from 3's

Tie Game! Come on dogs!

MSUado

It sure feels like we have been fouling a lot.

Fatboy

It sure feels like we have been fouling a lot.

The refs are horrible

Fatboy
02-11-2009, 09:31 PM
I really can't believe we are down only 1

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:32 PM
The refs have been pretty poor on both sides, and VERY ticky. Both teams in bonus before the 10:00 mark of the second half.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:32 PM
I really can't believe we are down only 1

Me neither considering the poor rebounding and shooting. Plus it seems like LSU goes to the line every time.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:32 PM
Me neither considering the poor rebounding and shooting. Plus it seems like LSU goes to the line every time.

Check that it looks like the rebounding is pretty even.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:34 PM
LSU responds very well every time we get it close. They have to miss at some point. Now I know how other teams feel when we shoot it like this.

Tennessee
02-11-2009, 09:35 PM
How is this game not on TV? Or is it?

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:37 PM
How is this game not on TV? Or is it?

It is not on tv. Bulldogs are down 3 with 7:40 left.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:37 PM
It's not on TV - the UGA @ Tennessee game was selected instead....ya got me.

LSU up 59-56, 7:40. And yeah, LSU keeps responding every time we tie the game. Very frustrating.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:43 PM
Bulldogs tie it up and then LSU hits another three. They are over 50% from 3.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:44 PM
This is a critical point in the game in my opinion. 6 minutes left and we are down 3.

Tennessee
02-11-2009, 09:44 PM

LSU up 59-56, 7:40. And yeah, LSU keeps responding every time we tie the game. Very frustrating.

I think most of the B-ball schedule is done pre-season, however, I would have thought there would be someone to pick it up (ie Fox Sports South instead of showing Best Damn Sports who)

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:46 PM
We get within one and then LSU hits another 3 to go up by four with five left.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:47 PM
LSU absolutely will not miss. 52.6% from three. They have hands in their faces and they're still draining EVERYthing.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:47 PM
We have missed a lot of layups and our perimeter shooting has been pathetic.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:48 PM
LSU has the ball up 2 with four minutes left. GOOOOOOOO Dawgs. We need this one.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:50 PM
Three minutes to go and we are on the line down 4.

Dawg
02-11-2009, 09:50 PM
One of those nights for MSU. State just can't get anything to fall and those same shots are falling for LSU.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:51 PM

I agree. This one just didn't feel right from the beginning.

Fatboy
02-11-2009, 09:51 PM
We are 3 of 15 from 3. I can't believe we are still in it. Mitchell is a beast.

Fatboy
02-11-2009, 09:53 PM
Tied it up at 67. Com'on dogs!

MSUado
02-11-2009, 09:53 PM

72-71 LSU with 27 seconds left

Dawg
02-11-2009, 10:00 PM
That one WIDE-open layup missed by Bost will be the difference in this game.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 10:00 PM
Down 1 with 24 seconds.

Fatboy
02-11-2009, 10:00 PM
14 seconds left and dogs have the ball!!!!! Please make it

MSUado
02-11-2009, 10:05 PM
Bulldog ball with 2.8 seconds left. Game is tied.

Overtime. Let's go dogs.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 10:08 PM
Technical foul on the MSU bench to start overtime. That's really dumb. What the heck happened.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 10:11 PM

Jarvis is gone. 31 points. The guy just ran him over.

This does not bode well for us. Jarvis was our everything tonight.

Down three.

MSUado

And another critical turnover.

LSUTigers1404
02-11-2009, 10:19 PM
Really!??? State Shot about 40 freethrows

Nah, that's only because the refs don't want to make it look obvious. They clearly have an agenda and want LSU to win so damn bad. :sarcasm:

MSUado
02-11-2009, 10:19 PM
Another missed three. Good game LSU.

msudawgs1964
02-11-2009, 10:20 PM
State is actually doing everything they can to lose this thing as well. I learned to say the hell with SEC officiating in every sport, they suck.

LSUTigers1404

danny_d_lsu

LSU has no depth

Fatboy
02-11-2009, 10:26 PM
This is insane. I'd really like to know what that technical was about.

On the inbound of the last play in regulation LSU players were pulling on Bost's jersey. That is who the play was meant for. The ball in thrown to Nardo who is way to far away from the basket and misses. Rick looses his mind and gets T'd up.

MSUado
02-11-2009, 10:26 PM
LSU scores first again.

I'm serious the worst called game I've ever seen...If you think the lane violation was bad, oh oh think again..Lets see Jarvis taking a charge and getting a foul...The worst one was against Romero..In the replay he was 5-6 inches away from whoever and they called a foul..Then in one of the OT Barry went up for like the win and they landed all over him and no foul...Um another one I say one of LSU's guys had his arm wrapped all around our guys...I'm sorry congrats but that is the most BS game I've ever been too...I'd rather y'all have kicked our ass then this...I can't believe they can't do their job..Yeah you'll say oh they called 51 fouls or whatever and so many on LSU...Well the critical ones they didn't call..They called stupid ones and the ones that mattered they didn't...So anyway congrats...I might get a drink for one of the first time..Got an abstract to do and a test 2morrow..Gotta get focused but after hollering and screaming at "On their knees" as I would call the ref, my head hurts and its just disappointing..One thing is I do wish this game would have been on TV where the ref (the dark haired white dude) would get his ass fired....Ugh....This is not a sore loser, but someone who follows MSU basketball to the core, played some in high school and knows how the game works and the rules on things...I'll say they were very nit picky on both sides, but I mean cmon..Seriously? :zipit: The most important calls weren't called...Anyway I gotta get off...Congrats y'all pretty much got the SEC in hand Tigers...:sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2:

Yeah I agree on that...But I think the game was over as we pretty much went into 2 OT...Every time we tied it up or barely took the lead, they'd hit a shot...LSU is a HELL of a team and best in the SEC hands down....I just wish the refs could call a fair game on both sides of the ball and see who plays better...Very nitpicky but miss critical calls....Aah...:sad2:

Many people are calling LSU the best team in the SEC. If that is true, Miss. State can use it as a confidence booster. It took us 2 OT's to beat you.

Losing at home is never a confidence booster.

He was thinking about the 1000 pt club.

Hell nobody else really shot the 3 any better and Mitchel had a career game. I have to go back and look at all the stats but I just can't figure out how the hell we kept the game so close.

Mitchel could have shot the ball with an arm and a leg tied behind his back and wearing a pirate patch :pirate: and it would have gone in. Congrats to him.

Free throws....That's why I was so upset during the game, the officiating was bad both ways but definitely in favor of MSU as evidenced by the 50 something fouls that was called on LSU. I've never in my life seen so many fouls called in one game. MSU did a great job of hitting their free throws though, had they had a good night from the perimeter they would've one this one for sure. It was a great game no doubt, two teams that refused to lose. It's a shame it wasn't televised, ESPN is likely salivating at the mouth wishing they'd had shown this one.

No offense but you were not there. LSU fouled the **** out of everyone when they shot. I have seen a LOT of basketball games. This may be the worst officiated...ever. The phantom foul call on Osby, the blocking foul in Jarvis and the T against Stans...were ridiculous and only examples of ineptitude from start to finish. We had benefit of some calls too....adding to my contention that these guys should not be doing major college basketball games. Seriously, who Tees up a coach heading into an overtime?

Did not see the game obviously, but when one team shoots 52 free throws, they are not allowed to say that the refs didn't call shooting fouls.

(Regulation free throws were 20 to 36 in favor of MSU)

MSU124
02-12-2009, 12:49 AM
A T after regulation was ridiculous. I have never seen that before. They let Mitchell lower his shoulder and just charge every play. Can't help that many FT if that is the way LSU plays.

I think on both sides it was a piss-poor job of officiating.

With that said, LSU was CLEARLY the better team tonight. I'm amazed State found a way to stay in it. LSU was beyond clutch in every single way. I am very, very impressed by this team. We may just have a sleeper Sweet 16+ team from the SEC.

I agree. I watched the game on M2M & thought the officials were too whistle happy on both sides.
We couldnt hit our shots due in part to LSU playing good defense.
LSU imo is the best team in the SEC.. with a real chance at a run deep into the dance. We're still a season away imo. good luck the rest of the way!

Could not agree more. I still don't understand why he starts. Send his experience to the second substitution group and get a real shooter out there like Benock.

Stewart obviously can't handle the job of starter.

Not a big fan of Stewart but I can not go with Benock as the answer. Stewart can play defense...Benock not so much. Benock plays hard, don't get me wrong but he gets beat more often than not. Stewart should go back to his freshman days where all he shoots is 3's. His mid-range game is a joke.

ive noticed.. that as a team need to mix in more layups/dunks fromt he guards. least on those there's a chance of a foul or an offensive put back.

overall i think we're right on schedule for this team. another road win this saturday would be nice.. but AU is very tough at home.

fck it....at this point...Bench Stewert...move Ravern to the 3 and put osby at the 4......Stewert has lost us at least 3 games this year so far with his shooting.....he's either decent....or absolute *****....he can play some good D which would make him a useful sub from the bench.

I agree...His made range jumpers that end up in the hands of the other team at the FT line from being missed so bad have lead to numerous baskets in transition. If I never see another one of his "fade-aways" it will be to soon. How Stans can tell a player like Ravern to not shoot so much and allow Stewart to have free reigh is beyond me. But Stans has always had his favorites...like it or not.

Rick will never bench him for whatever reason he seems stuck in his ways. I would much prefer that we commit to a power forward and move Phil to the 2 spot. I wouldn't mind Brian Johnson at the pf spot or Kodi or Romero for that matter. Put Barry on the bench though.

That's true of most winning teams but that doesn't mean that there isn't a weak spot. We won more times than not with our previous lineup but Rick still made a change. Barry takes bad shots and frankly just isn't a good enough basketball player. It would be fine with me if he would focus solely on the defensive end and only take the occasional three pointer and a drive to the basket but I dont think he should be averaging more than 6 shots per game.

If you paid more attention to the team and not to shooting down others on this board you'd realize the HUGE number of 1-of-10+ nights Stewart has had. He's a drain on the team's offense and needs to hit the bench.

As for whoever made the favorites comment - that's not really true...Stans just favors experience at any cost.

my team is in 2nd place in the West .. just about where i thought they would be. LSU is the better team. Stans & MSU are back to back West Champs.. with Stewart. I'll be fine leaving the decisions up to Stansbury.

MSU completes sweep of Ole Miss in basketball
OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi State turned real defensive Thursday night, totally shutting down in-state rival Ole Miss 66-50 in a Southeastern Conference women’s basketball game at Tad Smith Coliseum.

MSU won a conference road game for the third time this season. The Lady Bulldogs improved to 19-6 overall and 6-4 in league play. MSU moved into sole possession of fifth place in the overall conference standings. The Lady Rebels fell to 15-10 and 4-6.
The victory was only MSU’s seventh all-time in Tad Smith Coliseum. The margin of victory was the second largest ever in this building. The Lady Bulldogs complete a season sweep of their in-state rivals for the first time since back-to-back season sweeps in both 2002 and 2003.
