On a bitterly cold night in the Golden Triangle area, the Mississippi State fired up the nets, shooting 48.4 percent from the floor for a victory against Vanderbilt Tuesday night at Humphrey Coliseum.
Quinndary Weatherspoon led the Bulldogs with 19 points. Aric Holman recorded his fourth double-double with 18 points and a career-high 14 rebounds. Lamar Peters was also in double figures with 10 points.
MSU snapped a three-game losing streak, while improving to 14-4 overall and 2-3 in league play. The Bulldogs are 13-1 in Humphrey Coliseum this season. MSU will now prepare for back-to-back road games (Alabama and Kentucky) before coming back home for a Jan. 27 meeting with Missouri.
