The Mississippi State Bulldogs tip off tonight at 6pm on ESPN against TCU in the Big12/SEC Challenge. The Horned Frogs led by second year head coach Trent Johnson have quite a few similarities with the Bulldogs.
The TCU women’s basketball team won again on Wednesday, but the 60-52 final score over Stephen F. Austin was the only positive head coach Jeff Mittie could draw from the game.
TCU went 2-12 away from Daniel-Meyer Coliseum a year ago, which probably said more about the general state of the team at the time than it said about how tough road wins are to come by.
Two players have reached double figures in five of Mississippi State’s first six games. Craig Sword, the Bulldogs’ leading scorer from a year ago, isn’t surprising. Foward Roquez Johnson is.
