Thumbs down to the Mississippi State athletic department. With a week left until practice begins, the Bulldogs still have not released their basketball schedule. Their key non-conference games are in Anaheim against Arizona on December 5th and at Xavier on December 18th. You’ll just have to wait for the rest. They should take a cue from schools like Georgetown and Providence that are still looking to fill one game. They have posted their slate while making it clear that another game will be added soon.
