Mississippi State enters this evening’s game with a record of 14-7 overall, 5-3 in the Southeastern Conference. The Bulldogs have won five straight SEC games after starting off conference play 0-3. Their lone loss during that five game SEC winning streak was a one-point loss at Oklahoma as part of the SEC-Big 12 Challenge. Mississippi State is one of the most dominant teams in the country on the offensive glass, rebounding 37.4% of their own misses on the way to capturing 13 offensive rebounds per game. Coach Ben Howland has the Bulldogs playing some very efficient basketball of late thanks to improved shooting from beyond the arc since their slow start to SEC play.
