Sophomore guard Derrick Millinghaus after the MSU loss talked about the need for he and his teammates to better prepare from the scouting information they receive as a means to cut off baseline drives by opponents.

    I hope Marshall comes out on fire tonight and scores 40 pts.

    ***Tenn. kicked the Tigers butt 68-50 at LSU last Saturday. No reason why the Rebels can’t do the same at the Tad Pad.
