Rivals MSU, Alabama clash

January 14, 2012

There are no more divisions for Southeastern Conference basketball.

That doesn't mean that today's game between the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Crimson Tide, old SEC Western Division rivals, is any less important. The game tips at 3 p.m.

The Tide (13-3 overall, 2-0 SEC) enter Humphrey Coliseum riding a five-game win streak and fresh off a 69-53 dismantling of LSU on Wednesday night.

In that outing super sophomore, Trevor Releford, led Alabama with 20 points while Tony Mitchell picked up a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.

Several of the schools in the Oktibbeha County School District are facing serious pressure this school year to raise state standardized test scores.

Mississippi Department of Education representatives visited the Oktibbeha County School District Board of Trustees’ regular meeting on Monday and updated the board on the situation at East Oktibbeha County Elementary School and East Oktibbeha County High School. The department has spent the last few months working with the struggling schools to help improve not only test scores but student achievement.
