Miss. State basketball team moves up in polls

By Brad Locke/NEMS Daily Journal

Mississippi State moved up in both sets of basketball rankings this week.

The Bulldogs (15-3, 2-1 SEC) jumped two spots to No. 18 in the AP poll, and made a big five-place jump to No. 15 in the USA Today coaches poll.

State beat Tennessee and Alabama at home last week, each by four points. Up next is a trip to Oxford against Ole Miss on Wednesday (8 p.m., CSS).
