Seth Heck said in the preseason that Mississippi State was going to have a little power in its lineup this year â€“ or at least more than last year.
The No. 20 Bulldogs proved Heck right in game one of the season as they had three extra base hits and 10 hits total in a 6-2 win over Cincinnati Friday at Dudy Noble Field.
For the most part, there has been one area of concern in Mississippi State's losses this season.
The Bulldogs have struggled with securing the basketball, especially in halfcourt sets. In a loss to Alabama on Tuesday, the Bulldogs turned the ball over 15 times and the Crimson Tide turned those into 18 points.
All good things must come to an end.
Three Starkville basketball players realized that Friday night as they said goodbye to their time as a Yellowjacket by playing their final regular season home contest.
Nick Deloach, Raphael Leonard and Josh Skinner made good on their last time with a 68-42 defeat of the Aberdeen Bulldogs.Â
Senior Daija Williams said being a Starkville Lady Yellowjackets over the last few years meant "sisterhood" and playing as a team.
The Lady Jackets couldn't have played much more like a team than they did on Friday night as they handled the Aberdeen Bulldogs easily 55-14 on senior night.
Williams was one of four SHS players to score nine points against Aberdeen and was just glad to contribute.
