MSST - in Tupelo 2023

NT is playing sunday afternoon basketball in Tupelo, MS vs Mississippi State. Lets’ see what we get, in what hopefully is Walker’s debut?

Hey we are here, and in the Substack Chat, and also on twitter

Waiting to see what is what:

MSST going on a little run after going down seven. NT pushes back, but its been back and forth defense here. MSST with extra defensive energy. NT needs to weather this late-half storm.

NT 27-MSST 22 5:00

Okay after a run ending with it tied at 30, NT got a yuuuuge bucket from Scott, working his way for a layup. NT up two with 55s left 32-30. Now fouled State. They are at the line.

HALF: NT down 32-26 – a 6-0 run for state. A 14-2 run over the last 3 minutes and change.

Scott leads NT with 10. Buggs is 1-5. Edwards is 2-6.

Game over – NT gets rocked 54-72. The second half saw NT shoot terribly, get out hustled, get out muscled, and fall to MSST in Tupelo.

No Rondel Walker, no moral victory. Just a butt-whooping right before UT-Arlington.
