MSU faces same situation in Hoover
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. â€“ Mississippi State will be right back in the same situation it faced last year in Hoover, Ala.
The Bulldogs are the No. 5 seed in the Southeastern Conference Tournament and will play No. 12 seed Georgia in the late game Tuesday night in a single-elimination format.
If State wins, it will play South Carolina on Wednesday in a double-elimination format.
"We played a good SEC year this year," MSU senior second baseman Brett Pirtle said. "We're just going into the tournament and we just need our momentum to keep going."
MSU head coach John Cohen said the Bulldogs will more than likely throw junior left hander Lucas Laster, but that hasn't been finalized yet.Â
The Bulldogs are a lock for the NCAA Tournament, but where they end up is anybody's guess.Â
"Everything in postseason's about building your resume," Cohen said. "I still think we need to do that."
