Mississippi State Basketball heading to NIT Semifinals

In a normal college basketball season beating Kentucky in the SEC Tournament probably means big things ahead, but for the Mississippi State Bulldogs, they lost their very next game and went on to miss out on the Big Dance.

The alternative, its own way, could turn out to be even better.

Four seed MSU taking on two seed Richmond in the second round of the NIT, winner of this one punches its ticket to the Final Four.

Bulldogs hold on to the lead and get the dub 68-67 to advance onto the NIT semifinals on Saturday to take on either Louisiana Tech or Western Kentucky.
