This is a big week of basketball on the road for the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs.
Any stretch of games in the Southeastern Conference is deemed important for positioning in the standings, but there's one particular reason to place emphasis on the matchups of this midweek.
It's rivalry week.
Forget for a moment that the Bulldogs have a battle against a tough Vanderbilt team Saturday in Nashville, Tenn., or that the Lady Bulldogs are in need of an SEC home victory against Auburn on Sunday.
Starkville High School's Nathan Pugh has a reputation that attracted Pearl River Community College.
Pugh signed with the Wildcats Tuesday morning at the high school library.
On hand were assistant coaches from PRCC, his family, and SHS head coach Danny Carlisle.
Pearl River CC assistant coach Kyle Lindsey said Pugh's character and talent was something needed in the program.
"(Character is something) we are trying to recruit," Lindsey said. "He fits the mold of character and a great player. He has a chance to pitch and play a position for us as two-way (player)."
JACKSON â€“ The Starkville Academy girls' basketball team never allowed more than 10 points a quarter Tuesday night against Hillcrest Christian.
The Lady Volunteers went on to defeat the Lady Cougars 48-16.
SA jumped out early in the first quarter and took an 18-3 lead into the second period. They did even better in the second frame defensively only giving up two points. However, they only scored four themselves.
They took a 22-5 lead into the locker room at intermission.
The Starkville Christian School Lady Cougars got a good look at their future Tuesday night and it was pretty good.
Moultrie Earns Player of the Week Honors
It certainly wasn't what the Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs needed against the 19th-ranked team in the country.
Dee Bost and Bryan Bryant combined for Mississippi Stateâ€™s last eight points over the final 1:35 to defeat the Alabama Crimson Tide 56-52 in front 8,730 fans inside Humphrey Coliseum Saturday afternoo
Arnett Moultrie was pretty much an unknown at Mississippi State prior to this season.
After 18 games, he has introduced himself pretty nicely to the Bulldogs and the college basketball world.
Arnett Moultrie stole the show for the Mississippi State Bulldogs in their 56-52 win over Alabama on Saturday afternoon.
The Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs see if the momentum from a big Southeastern Conference victory on the road carries over against one of the top teams in the nation today.
