Every game has meaning for I.J. Ready, but today's game carries a little more incentive.
Ready, a native of North Little Rock, Ark., and the Mississippi State Bulldogs (13-13, 3-10) take on Arkansas at 3 p.m. inside Humphrey Coliseum.
"I saw that game on the schedule when I first got here," the true freshman point guard said. "It came quicker than I thought but I'm ready for it."
The game can be seen on Southeastern Conference TV and locally on WCBI.
This will be Ready's first time to play his home-state school, and head coach Rick Ray knows how his young player is feeling.
Ray has to get Ready to combat that eagerness and show him that playing like he has all season is all he needs to do.
"I hope he doesn't get too fired up," Ray said. "Sometimes that can be a detriment. They have to make sure they go out, execute and play basketball."
