Mississippi State basketball

Guard Jazzmun Holmes talks about Mississippi State's trip to the World Games.

A few months ago, when Jazzmun Holmes and her teammates walked off of the floor at the Moda Center in Portland, Ore., it was supposed to be the final time she represented Mississippi State in an official capacity.

Holmes had plans of trying out for the WNBA and continuing her basketball career as a professional, but that opportunity never came. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise for both the talented point guard and for MSU alike as her former head coach Vic Schaefer approached her about playing with the team in the World University Games in Naples, Italy.

For ore on Holmes and the Bulldogs, see upcoming editions of The Starkville Daily News.
