I’ve arrived courtside for tonight’s men’s basketball game against Arkansas State. It feels like forever since the men have played at home, well 23 days to be exact. It will be interesting to see what kind of game former MSU signee P.J. Hardwick has against the Bulldogs. Remember that the game is televised on the SEC Network.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
