Bas­ket­ball

Starkville Daily News - - SCORECARD -

Blair Schaefer and Mitchell Storm will be head­ing to Birm­ing­ham, Ala., this week­end to rep­re­sent Mis­sis­sippi State at the South­east­ern Con­fer­ence's Men's and Women's Bas­ket­ball Lead­er­ship Coun­cil meet­ing.

The coun­cils con­sist of one male and one fe­male rep­re­sen­ta­tive from each of the South­east­ern Con­fer­ence's 14 mem­ber schools. Schaefer will be at­tend­ing for the sec­ond­straight year.

The week­end in­cludes a con­ver­sa­tion with Com­mis­sioner Greg Sankey and re­views of bas­ket­ball-re­lated NCAA and SEC items. The event also gives the par­tic­i­pants the op­por­tu­nity to speak with men's and women's bas­ket­ball of­fi­cials on the rules of the game and stu­dent-ath­lete/ref­eree in­ter­ac­tion.

Schaefer and the rest of the women's rep­re­sen­ta­tives will also get to dis­cuss ca­reers in pro­fes­sional sports and pre­par­ing for the WNBA with Re­nee Brown, the league's for­mer Chief of Bas­ket­ball Op­er­a­tions and Player Re­la­tions.

Storm and the other men's par­tic­i­pants will hear from for­mer ESPN lead bas­ket­ball re­porter Andy Katz on ca­reers in broad­cast­ing and per­sonal and pro­fes­sional imag­ing and brand­ing.

Soc­cer

With the non-con­fer­ence slate in the books, the Mis­sis­sippi State soc­cer team now sets its sights on South­east­ern Con­fer­ence play.

The Bull­dogs (6-0-1) will travel to Fayet­teville, Ark., to take on the Arkansas Ra­zor­backs (4-4-0) to­day with kickoff set for 7 p.m. at Ra­zor­back Field. The match will be streamed live on SEC Net­work+.

Last Sun­day, State tied South Alabama 1-1. The Bull­dogs bat­tled back from a 1-0 deficit when Court­ney Ro­bicheaux scored the ty­ing goal on a free kick in the 18th minute from just above the 18-yard box.

Brooke McKee cur­rently leads the Bull­dogs with eight points on the sea­son (three goals, two as­sists), while MaKayla Wald­ner and A.K. Ward also tie McKee for the team lead with three goals apiece.

In goal, Catalina Perez has started all seven of MSU's con­tests, record­ing 17 saves and earn­ing three shutouts.

Vol­ley­ball

Mis­sis­sippi State (7-5) closes out the fi­nal week­end of non-con­fer­ence play at the Newell-Gris­som this week­end for the sec­ond home tour­na­ment of the sea­son.

To­day, the Bull­dogs face Jack­son State (1-10) at noon and North Texas (9-1) at 7 p.m. MSU closes out the Ma­roon Clas­sic fac­ing South­east­ern Louisiana (1-9) at 11 a.m. Satur­day.

“We're look­ing for­ward to be­ing back home and play­ing at The Griss this week­end,” Bull­dog third-year coach David McFa­trich said. “We've stayed rel­a­tively healthy so far, and I sure hope that con­tin­ues be­cause we don't have a lot of depth. We need to im­prove our at­tack­ing ef­fi­ciency. We've been work­ing hard on that in prac­tice, and it's get­ting bet­ter.”

It has been 15 years since MSU and North Texas last played one an­other. The Bull­dogs lead the se­ries 3-2. Col­lege Foot­ball SEC Sched­ule Satur­day, Sept. 9 Miss. State 57, Louisiana Tech 21
