Men up 40 to 39 at the half. Lots of players so far for the Cats. Looking forward to them putting some separation in the score in the second half.

Men win! 77-70, it was a 2 point game with a minute left. Feel like the MSU teams of the last 10 years find a way to lose this game down the stretch. Big win, great job fellas!!

That's a good win against a very solid SDSU team. The Jackrabbits were 6-4 coming in to the game, with their losses coming against USC, Indiana, Arizona and Nebraska. I really like the way this Bobcat team plays.

The brick is back!!! They played and coached like the winners they are! Crowd was good but not quite yet at the level of the 60's. Go Cats!!!

Wow what a night. Nice big crowds for both games. No doubt Gonzaga is a brand that brought a lot of people through the door.
The women's team fought valiantly, but the Zags just had too much length. We never had an easy shot. Their defense was suffocating at times. But get this. Gonzaga's only loss was by 3 to now No. 1 Stanford. There is usually a very wide gap between Top 20 women's teams and mid-majors-much wider than on the men's side. So our team wasn't terrible. It got away a little in the 4th quarter, but I still think our team's best basketball is ahead of them. Our offense is still a little rough.

On the men's side, this 77-70 win over South Dakota State is our biggest non-conference win since...when? Huge win for the whole program. I'm pretty sure, if this was last season, the Jackrabbit's two bigs would have had about 80 points. But this year, Kirby, Belo, Quinlan, and Fernandez made them earn everything they got. Adamu-who's fundamentals are a little rough sometimes-had a monster game. Their guards tried to beat the tar out of Harald Frey, but Frey was definitely up to the task. Just a massive, massive win.

Here's the final sequence. Mychael Paulo was almost the forgotten man on the bench in the second half. Sprinkle inserted him into the lineup when we were up 2 with under a minute-anticipating that they would press...and he scores the final five points of the game. Huge!

Ladies played well but couldn't hit a shot! Went 0-13 from 3 vs. the Zags 9-16, so lost be 27 there and only 15 for the game!

Men played outstanding. DK was a MAN on the boards last night! Harald is SO tough!

First game of the year for me and I was pleasantly surprised by the turnout for late on a Thursday. There was good energy all game and it was quite entertaining. Sprinks has definitely got this team playing with a different mindset than last year. Adamu is so much fun to watch, Kirby is stepping up and getting better every game, and Frey is just doing what he do! Conference should be very interesting this year!

One thing I have noticed, through all the coaches on twitter is the the acknowledgment and support between sports.
You see Choate commenting and congratulating Sprinkle, Binford shouting out Choate and football. Occasionally I would see this in the past,
but all three coaches seem supportive of each others programs publicly quite often. I know there has to be some competition in the athletic dept, but at least publicly it is awesome to see the shout outs between them.

Definitely! I think that is what Brint Wahlberg alluded to in his podcast about how far ahead of UM that MSU is in terms of a unified message from every aspect of the university.

So this is pretty interesting. With women's team doing school day the last three years, they have had 3 non-conference games of over 6,000, whilst the men haven't broken 5,000 for a non-conference game since 1997. In any case, last night's crowd for both the women's and men's game was big and it was great to see. I think both teams will see their attendance tick up a bit from previous recent seasons.

And Costello as well. A strong AD is a very under appreciated thing. I love the unity in the programs since he has taken the reins.
