Video: Craig Sword

Mississippi State senior guard Craig Sword previews the Bulldogs’ SEC opener against No. 21 Texas A&M. In four career games against the Aggies, Sword is averaging 10.8 points.

On the transition to SEC play …

“It is a big deal. Everybody should be ready because we have been waiting on this all year. I tell the younger guys that we are going to have to come out and play hard every night. It’s going to be tough every night.”

On the difference for Gavin Ware between this year and past seasons …

“He has lost a lot of weight. This summer I saw him in the gym a lot, like when I was injured and was always here. He was always in the gym shooting and running. It showed up this year.”

 On what has been clicking in the last games …

“We have started to come together a lot now. I think everybody is used to each other now and we have started to adjust to each other.”

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.
