Mississippi State’s women came oh so close to winning the national championship.
On this episode, Logan looks back at the Bulldogs’ last-second loss to Notre Dame in the title game (3:52). He and Parrish discuss the big non-call that didn’t go MSU’s way in the final seconds, and then the game-winning shot that followed. Also, Logan takes a peek at how next year’s team might look after losing four seniors.
The Ole Miss women are looking to get stronger with the hiring of a new coach, Yolett McPhee-McCuin (8:50). She spent the last five years rebuilding the Jacksonville program, with one NCAA tournament appearance. McPhee-McCuin is young and energetic, but will that translate into more wins for the Rebels?
Spring football is in full swing for both schools, with the Grove Bowl coming up Saturday for Ole Miss. Parrish examines the running back position (16:09), which has built some depth this spring with Scottie Phillips and Isaiah Woullard. One big question is whether D’Vaughn Pennamon can establish himself as the lead back now that Jordan Wilkins is gone.
MSU is a few practices in and will hold its first scrimmage on Saturday (21:15). Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald, who badly injured his ankle in the Egg Bowl, looks to be well on the road to recovery, as he’s been running all the plays and moving well in practice.
On the baseball diamond, Ole Miss and MSU meet this weekend. Parrish says this Ole Miss team looks very similar to the 2014 Omaha squad (25:09), and the offense has taken a definite step forward this season. As for the Bulldogs, their biggest struggle continues to be on offense (27:57).
