MSU to meet Baylor on Dec. 28 in Dallas

By NEMS Daily Journal

Mississippi State continues to add muscle to its 2011-12 basketball schedule.
The Bulldogs will take on Baylor at American Airlines Arena in Dallas on Dec. 28, according to a Baylor news release. The Bears, members of the Big 12, went 18-13 and lost in the first round of the league tournament last season.
The Baylor date is part of a pretty stiff December for the Bulldogs, who travel to West Virginia on Dec. 3, to Detroit on Dec. 17, and play midmajor power Utah State at home on Dec. 31.
MSU is also playing in the 2K Classic, with two home games Nov. 7 and 9 against yet-to be determined opponents, and then two games in New York City. Arizona, Texas A&M and St. John’s will be there, too.
