Lady Bulldogs hope they are up to task in Oxford

January 18, 2012

The Mississippi State Bulldogs don't expect it to be easy tonight when they take on rival Ole Miss in Oxford.

MSU's chances at a victory are improved if it does the job in certain areas.

"Any team can be beaten any night when you do those little things," State senior point guard Diamber Johnson said. "That plays a major part."

The Lady Bulldogs and Lady Rebels take the Tad Smith Coliseum floor at 7 p.m., one night after the men clashed in Southeastern Conference action.

Dampier enjoyed time with Heat

January 18, 2012

It takes more than one, two or three All-Star players to have success.

Former Mississippi State center Erick Dampier got to experience that first-hand in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Miami Heat last season.

Even though Miami had LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh (a.k.a. The Big Three), Dampier said there was more to the team than just them.

"People always talk about the big three on that team, but they can't go out and win all of those games by themselves," Dampier said. "It takes 12 people and that's what people fail to realize. You have to talk about the team in order to win games. Those guys bought into the team concept and without the other 12 people on that team, we couldn't win."

In only one season of being together, Dampier gained tremendous respect for James because of the way he went about his business.

Dampier calls James "the best player in the league," but said there's a reason he has reached that status.

Christmas leftovers, stocking style

The trees are boxed up, re-planted or chopped into firewood. The Santas have been deflated and the light shows turned off – most of them at least. But Christmas lingers on for me via the scales and in
