Up and down season continues for Bulldogs

Mississippi State’s first three games in Southeastern Conference play have been a wild roller coaster ride.
The Bulldogs led at halftime at Kentucky. They couldn’t hold onto that lead and the Wildcats picked up an 85-63 victory.
MSU returned home last Saturday to face in-state rival Ole Miss. After a decent first half, the Bulldogs found themselves down in the second half.
Unlike at Kentucky, the Bulldogs kept their composure and rallied from behind to beat the Rebels 76-72.
State was hoping to ride that momentum into Alabama on Wednesday, but it was apparent early on that the fight from the Ole Miss game wasn’t there.
“We have got to find a way for our guys to learn how to deal with some success,” MSU head coach Rick Ray said after Wednesday’s game. “We haven’t had a lot of success here, but when we do, our guys get so wrapped up in that success, don’t carry it over to the next game, know who we are as a team and who we are as people.”
