MSU's Hood excited about Ole Miss game

January 18, 2012

In the state of Mississippi, it is a pretty much understood thing that Bulldogs don’t like Rebels and Rebels don’t care for Bulldogs.
That’s just the way it is.

For Mississippi State's Rodney Hood, a Meridian native, he gets the rivalry loud and clear. 

“I know people don't like Ole Miss. I don't have anything against them but I know State fans really want this,” said Hood who is the third-leading scorer for the Bulldogs with 11.6 points per game. “I know we don't like them and they don't like us. I'm excited for the game.”

Hood will get his first taste of MSU’s oldest rivalry tonight as the 15-3 Bulldogs travel to Oxford to take on the 11-6 Rebels and in doing so he’ll face one of his more difficult matchups of the season in forward, Terrance Henry.

State men, women see a big week

January 17, 2012

This is a big week of basketball on the road for the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs.

Any stretch of games in the Southeastern Conference is deemed important for positioning in the standings, but there's one particular reason to place emphasis on the matchups of this midweek.

It's rivalry week.

Forget for a moment that the Bulldogs have a battle against a tough Vanderbilt team Saturday in Nashville, Tenn., or that the Lady Bulldogs are in need of an SEC home victory against Auburn on Sunday.

Pearl River CC assistant coach Kyle Lindsey said Pugh's character and talent was something needed in the program.

"(Character is something) we are trying to recruit," Lindsey said. "He fits the mold of character and a great player. He has a chance to pitch and play a position for us as two-way (player)."
