We knew the Mississippi State basketball program would need some time to develop its roster of standout recruits this season.
But ETSU? Really?
On Wednesday night, East Tennessee State stole a game from the Bulldogs in Starkville. Hanner Mosquera-Perea tipped in a teammate’s errant tip attempt with 2 seconds remaining to break a tie as the Buccaneers moved to 8-2 on the season.
Mississippi State now is 6-3 with three games remaining on its nonconference schedule — at Southern Miss, vs. Morehead State and vs. UMKC — before opening SEC play against Alabama on Jan. 3.
Check out Wednesday’s game-deciding play below:
