“We just tried to come out and play hard as a team,” said Weatherspoon. “Tonight we put together 40 minutes on offense and defense and it went good. I was glad me and Aric got a couple of baskets to start the second half to keep our team going and to keep our heads up.”

Mississippi State held a 12-point lead at the half. However, Vanderbilt managed to chip away in the second half and cut the deficit to 55-50 with 11:47 left in regulation. But Mississippi State answered with a 16-2 run to put the game away.
