Steal seals deal: Bost's defensive play secures MSU victory

January 13, 2012

Dee Bost now has 167 steals in his Mississippi State career.

The 167th was a pretty important one on Thursday night.

Bost stole a pass with 6 seconds and converted a slam dunk on the other end to help the Bulldogs preserve a 62-58 win over the Tennessee Volunteers in the Southeastern Conference home opener.

Tennessee inbounded the basketball in the frontcourt with 11 seconds remaining down by two when Bost took the ball from Trea Golden, the hottest Vol on the floor, and capped the scoring with his dunk with 4 seconds remaining.

Bulldogs turn up defense on Vols

January 13, 2012

It was a turn of 180 degrees for the Mississippi State defense Thursday night in Humphrey Coliseum.

The Bulldogs only allowed Tennessee to score 58 points in a 62-58 victory, which was better than the 98 points the Arkansas Razorbacks scored on them Saturday night in Fayetteville.

"Our defense didn't cross the Mississippi (River) going to Arkansas," MSU head coach Rick Stansbury said. "But I didn't panic because they were the only ones to score more than 75 against us. We did better tonight."

The Volunteers came in averaging 74.5 percent points per game. It was pretty obvious by halftime that UT was not going to reach its season average. They scored only 27 points in the first half.

Bush leading JSU Tigers in final year

January 13, 2012

Jenirro Bush knows it's important for him to be a leader for the Jackson State men's basketball team.

As the only senior for the Tigers, the former East Oktibbeha player understands how much responsibility comes with it.

"I've got to do more of the tough stuff like rebounding, trying to lead more by example and calm some of the younger guys down," Bush said. "For a couple of them, it's their first time playing Division I basketball so I try to keep them poised on the court, slow them down a little bit and try to teach them some of the things that upperclassmen taught me."

Jackson State coach Tevester Anderson said Bush has been valuable as a senior.

SCS boys defeat Winston Academy

January 13, 2012

Starkville Christian boys basketball coach Mark Horstmeyer knew he had a reason to be proud of Thursday's night game against Winston Academy.

After seeing the statistics, he could see why his Cougars were so successful in beating the visiting Patriots 62-35 at the Cougar Cave.

Starkville Christian only had 13 turnovers, its lowest total of the season, made a season-best 10-of-12 free throws and five Cougars had at least six rebounds.

Horstmeyer likes the way SCS is coming together as a team.

"They feel good about (winning) and they should," Horstmeyer said. "Part of the goal is to understand that it's having success as a team.
