Three Up; Three To Go

Posted by Kevin on February 28, 2008

Mississippi State’s win over Auburn last night, coupled with Arkansas losing to Alabama clinches at least a share of the SEC Western Division championship for the second straight season for the Bulldogs. MSU trails Tennessee by one game for the overall SEC regular season championship.

Senior Charles Rhodes scored a career high 30 points to pace MSU. Stuck at his previous career high of 27 points as the game wound under a minute to play, Rhodes got the ball. He later said he was well aware of his previous career high and how many points he had at the time. Nothing was going to stop him from scoring just one more basket. Of course, I doubt anyone in the building would have expected that basket to be a 3. Rhodes got the ball out on the elbow, turned and dribbled to the top of the key and promptly drained a three pointer to close out his scoring with a new career high 30 points.

State travels this week to play at Florida and at Vanderbilt before closing out the season at home against LSU. Arkansas hosts Vanderbilt, travels to Ole Miss, then hosts Auburn to close out the season. Even with our tough week coming up, I like our chances of clinching the Western Division title outright.
