ROAD GAME - SEC Tournament: MSU Men's Basketball vs. Texas A&M

Kennedy will not be retained as A&M men's basketball head coach

Lamar Peters' wrist is feeling much better, and now he's doing his best to help the Mississippi State Bulldogs burnish their resume before the NCAA Tournament.

After a dominating performance, the Mississippi State Bulldogs advance to take on the No.3 seed Vols on Friday night around 9:30 EST. The Bulldogs have averaged 10 3-pointers per game over their last three games.

Howland said he looks forward to post-season play.

Peters credited his improved shooting to simply staying in the gym and practice shooting after practice.

The Bulldogs (23-9) now have won seven of their last nine with their second win over Texas A&M in six days.

The Tennessee Volunteers come into the 2019 SEC tournament as the #3 seed, finishing the regular season with a record of 27-4, including 15-3 in conference play, tied for the 2nd best record in the conference but losing out on a tiebreaker with Kentucky.

In A&M's first meeting with Vanderbilt this season, the Aggies came out lethargic and lackadaisical, quickly falling behind 11-0. A&M is 13-17 on the season, 6-12 in SEC play, 1-2 on a neutral floor, 14-16 against the spread and 18-12 with the under.

Kennedy said he wish he knew but hasn't talked to any administrator yet. "It's an unfortunate situation, but I'm not sure". Saben Lee has led the team with 12.5 points per game while Aaron Nesmith is adding 11.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per contest.

After the victory, Kerry Blackshear, who had 19 points and 10 rebounds, spoke about Tech's offensive versatility. Brandon Mahan had 10.


His mid-range jumper about a minute later forced a Vanderbilt timeout at 15:23, the lead up to 17.

It only got worse in the second half where the Bulldogs' biggest issue was a warning to coach Ben Howland to get back inside the coach's box. Hail State and Go Dawgs!

Texas A&M: Kennedy had a very young team this season with 10 players either sophomores or freshmen.

Last year, the Aggies lost on a buzzer-beater to Alabama and Vanderbilt the year before that.

The Aggies are set to play against Vanderbilt in the first round of the SEC conference tournament on Wednesday. Our guys are playing well, and I'm excited. It just has been that type of year.

Remember this exact scenario played out last season. "If you're not at full strength, it's hard to win". They outrebounded Texas A&M 38-24 and had a 36-18 scoring edge in the paint.

"When you have teammates like ours, it makes the game a lot easier from the start, whether we're hitting or not, because everybody is a threat", Blackshear said. That's back-to-back games where we had 22, our previous game against Texas A&M, our last game of the year, then 17 today. That just kind of overflowed to us.

Texas A&M: Announcement on Kennedy's future.
