Mississippi State’s 2013-14 basketball slate now includes a trip to Las Vegas.
The Bulldogs have been invited to play in the annual Continental Tire Las
Vegas Classic on Dec. 22-23 at Orleans Arena. MSU will be joined by Santa Clara, South Florida and UNLV. A bracket will be announced at a later date.
State last played in Vegas in December of 2010, when it lost to St. Mary’s, 94-72. The Bulldogs are a combined 5-0 all time
against Santa Clara and USF but have never faced UNLV. Former MSU player DeVille Smith recently transferred to UNLV.
Two on-campus games are included in this event, and one of them will be Dec. 19 when Florida Gulf Coast visits MSU.
