The Mississippi State Bulldogs are a different softball team, a better one, than last time it played against the Kentucky Wildcats.
Back in early March, MSU lost two out of three games at home to Kentucky, including being no-hit by Kelsey Nunley.
Since then, the Bulldogs have been on a journey that saw them win four games against top five competition in Alabama and Tennessee late in the season.
MSU coach Vann Stuedeman believes that kind of late-season success can translate into a good run in the SEC Tournament. The Bulldogs see the Wildcats again in today's first round at 3 p.m. in Columbia, S.C.
"We've grown a lot in the last half of SEC play in taking two from Alabama, two from Tennessee and two from Arkansas," Stuedeman said. "We've got a lot of confidence going into the tournament. We grew up a little bit and taking that step in the process from thinking they can do it to knowing they can do it. I think they have the mindset that they can win this tournament, take it one game at a time and one day at a time. They've proven they belong."
