Mississippi State routs Texas A&M 80-54 at SEC tournament

Mississippi State has won just two of its last 11 games against Tennessee and in addition to last year's quarterfinal loss absorbed a second-round defeat in 2013.

This is the first game for the Bulldogs in the SEC Tournament. Williams had 25 points and nine rebounds, but the Volunteers had trouble dealing with a speedy Tigers team that stung them on the perimeter for 13 3-pointers - the second-most it allowed in a game this season. Chandler's layup with 15:42 left put the Aggies ahead to stay, and he followed with a 3-pointer as Texas A&M built its lead to as much as 15 on Flagg's jumper for a 34-19 halftime lead. Following Weatherspoon is Lamar Peters who is averaging 12 points a game and two boards.

CBB Today is one of the outlets to write about the idea of Buzz Williams leaving the Virginia Tech Hokies for the Texas A&M Aggies gig.

Vegas now has Mississippi State taking it by seven points but as coach Howland said anything can happen in the postseason, especially with A&M coming off a big win over Vanderbilt.

Mississippi State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 neutral site games. Yanni Wetzell scored 10 and pulled 10 rebounds. The bucket for Clayton was the first points of his collegiate career.

Giroud hat-trick helps Chelsea ease into Europa quarters
That's all for today! "I am really very happy for him and for the hat-trick, and I am really very happy with him". And accordingly the victor of the third quarter-final will play the victor of the second in the semi-finals.

Jay Jay Chandler scored 13 points and Josh Nebo added 11 for Texas A&M, which shot 53.8 percent from the field.

Tennessee was denied a share of the SEC title by Auburn, losing 84-80 on the road Saturday to give LSU the outright title and No. 1 seed.

Texas A&M was sparked by a 21-point, 10-rebound effort from Savion Flagg. The over/under total for this game is listed at 133 points.

"I thought our defense really was good in this game tonight. It always feels good when you come out of a good practice". I thought we were incredibly unselfish with 17 assists. "That's what we did last time we played them, kind of kept the game a little closer than it should've been". We may only be part of the way through the season, but Texas A&M is now riding the greatest streak going in Texas since James Harden's scoring streak ended.

"It's been a grueling season, playing six or seven guys and playing a couple of guys 40 minutes a game", Kennedy said.

"They're (Tennessee) a great team. We want a second chance against them". They've been incredibly impressive all year. In most of their losses this is where they had the most challenges. He's also made 65.4 percent of his free throws this season.
