Video: Malik Newman

Mississippi State guard Malik Newman discusses his struggles with injury during his freshman year and how he’s tried to stay positive through them. Newman also speaks about what the seniors mean to him and what he expects to see Wednesday against Ole Miss.

On what the senior class has meant to this team…

“The seniors did a terrific job this year of leading the way, showing us young guys what it was going to take and how we had to put in hard work each and every day to get better as individuals and as a team. I just think they did a great job of providing leadership for the team and making sure that the younger guys knew what it took to be in a position to be successful.”

On facing Ole Miss…

“I’m very excited to go there and play, just with it being a rivalry. I think the guys are amped up to play. I’m excited about it and I think the fans are excited about it so we’re just ready to go out there and play. Hopefully the whole team can have a good game.”

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.
