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.

Carlisle excited about opportunity

January 11, 2012

Danny Carlisle welcomes one more year of doing what he loves doing most and that's influencing young people.

Even though he has won over 500 games in his 27 seasons as the head baseball coach at Starkville High School, it has always been about teaching the players lessons that will benefit them later in life.

The Starkville School District granted Carlisle the chance to coach the 2012 season at Tuesday night's board meeting.

Carlisle enters his 28th and final season with much anticipation and gratitude.

"I thank the administration and school board for giving me the opportunity to finish out with this group because it's a good group," Carlisle said. "I'm excited about it. My deal is do it for the kids and make a difference with them in a positive way."

Dogs vs. Vols: MSU looking to bounce back at home after tough SEC loss

January 11, 2012

Searching for a way to bounce back from a tough loss at Arkansas, the Mississippi State Bulldogs welcome the Tennessee Volunteers to the Humphrey Coliseum tonight for the Southeastern Conference home opener.

Mississippi State (13-3, 0-1) is 11-2 in SEC home openers under coach Rick Stansbury. The Bulldogs face a Volunteer (8-7) team that is riding high after their upset win over the Florida Gators.

“First off, they are very good," Stansbury said. "Anytime you do to Florida what they did to Florida, you know you are very good. They’ve got a good balance inside and outside. They’ve got some veterans, some guys that have been around. They are going to get after you defensively. They’ll play extremely hard.” 

The Bulldogs gave up a season-high 98 points to the Razorbacks the last time out but Stansbury didn’t see that as an issue going forward. The sub-par defense was simply an aberration.

CVB: Tourist spending grows in Starkville

January 11, 2012

At a meeting of the Starkville Convention and Visitors Bureau board Tuesday, Jennifer Gregory, vice president for tourism development with the Greater Starkville Development Partnership, announced the money visitors spend on tourism in Oktibbeha County annually has increased nearly 25 percent over the last two years.

From 2009-2010, Gregory said, the Mississippi Development Authority’s tourism division reported an increase of nearly 10 percent, reaching about $65.2 million. She said such reports primarily account for money tourists spend on gas, food and hotels.

In 2011, Gregory said, tourism revenue reached about $74.9 million, an increase of about 14.8 percent. When the two consecutive increases are added together, she said, they approach a 25 percent increase over two years. She said this is a testament to the success of all the CVB’s tourism partners, including Mississippi State University athletics, the Mississippi Horse Park, the Starkville Area Arts Council and others.
