Good morning, people. I have a handful of links for you this morning, so grab a cup of joe and enjoy.
• MSU’s baseball team handled Rhode Island last night, 13-2, and is now 10-0 on the season. With Ole Miss losing to Memphis, the No. 5-ranked Bulldogs are now the only remaining undefeated team in the SEC. Starting pitcher Luis Pollorena had a solid outing, while Alex Detz had two hits and three RBIs. The teams meet again today at 4 p.m.
• MSU’s basketball team is headed up to Lexington to take on Kentucky tonight. As you can see, the advance focuses on freshman center Gavin Ware, who’s still trying to learn on the job. A telling stat mentioned in the story is that Ware ranks sixth on the team in shot attempts per game, with 6.6 (rounded up from 6.58). The five ahead of him: Colin Borchert (10.1), Fred Thomas (9.8), Jalen Steele (9.3), Craig Sword (9.0) and Roquez Johnson (6.61).
• In the AJC, Dan Mullen had some interesting thoughts on NCAA recruiting legislation, and he even mentioned the possibility of making a proposal for a four-week dead period during the summer. “I’ve got all kinds of ideas,” he said.
• Former MSU cornerback Darius Slay made a big impression at the NFL Combine on Tuesday. Looks like his fast 40-yard dash will equal more cash.
