STARKVILLE — Revenge was not a word that Mississippi State point guard Dee Bost used in his postgame comments Thursday night but it was quite obvious that defeating the Ole Miss Rebels was the main focus for the senior.
A little less than a month after dealing with comments directed at him from Ole Miss followers on Twitter, Bost gained a measure of revenge by helping lead the Bulldogs to a 70-60 win in front of a near capacity crowd of 10,364 at the Humphrey Coliseum. The native of Concord, N.C., finished with 15 points and a career-high 13 assists in the victory that was more one sided than the final score indicates. His floor game was praised by Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy, who has routinely said Bost is the best point guard in the Southeastern Conference. (February 10, 2012, Page 6A)

The Rebels (14-8 overall, 4-4 in the Southeastern Conference) let an opportunity to earn a road win at Alabama on Saturday slip through their fingers. Not only did the loss put them behind Alabama in the standings, it dropped their RPI rating down to the mid 50s, a figure that has to be improved if they have a realistic chance of earning a bid as an at-large team in the “Big Dance.” (February 9, 2012, Page 8)

Thursday night’s 51-46 loss to Mississippi State was a frustrating one for Ole Miss head coach Renee Ladner.
The game at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum was not a pretty game, especially for the Lady Rebels, who shot just 26.6 percent after knocking down 47 percent of their shots from the floor in consecutive Southeastern Conference wins. (January 20, 2012, Page 6A)
