CANTON â€“ It wasn't the type of start that the Starkville Lady Yellowjackets were looking for, but the finish was more to their liking.

Mississippi State redshirt sophomore Wes Rea can be an intimidating presence in the batter's box.

Senior pitcher Kendall Graveman said there's more to Rea than power.
OXFORD â€“ It was night and day from the first half to the second half for the Mississippi State women's basketball team Thursday night.

The Mississippi State Bulldogs haven't seen a losing season in basketball in over 12 years.
It came back around on Wednesday night.Â
The Missouri Tigers (18-6 overall, 7-4 Southeastern Conference) cruised to an easy 78-36 victory over Mississippi State (7-16, 2-9) inside Humphrey Coliseum.
It was not very pretty on the basketball court Wednesday night for Mississippi State.
During a season when quite a bit has gone wrong for the Bulldogs, it got worse against the Missouri Tigers.
All phases of the game seemed to work against MSU in a 78-36 loss at Humphrey Coliseum. The Bulldogs were out-shot, out-rebounded and sadly out-hustled at times, especially in the first half.
There's nothing like a little rivalry to juice up a Valentine's Day meeting on the basketball court.
That's what takes place in Oxford tonight when the Mississippi State Bulldogs take on the Ole Miss Rebels in Southeastern Conference women's action at 7 p.m.
