RPI Watch: Mississippi State currently has an RPI of 126, according to ESPN.
Who’s Hot: Junior forward Roquez Johnson led MSU in scoring both games last week off the bench. Johnson had 18 points in 34 minutes in the win over Auburn and followed up with 13 points in 30 minutes in the loss to the Rebels.
Who’s Not: Sophomore center Gavin Ware played just 28 combined minutes in two games this past week due to foul trouble. With Ware being the Bulldogs lone true big man, State was minus-16 in the rebounding column in those outings.
Upcoming: The Bulldogs host No. 6 Florida Thursday at 6 p.m. on ESPN2 followed by a road test at Vanderbilt at 4 p.m. on FSN Saturday.
