Tipoff: 7 p.m.
Arena: Humphrey Coliseum
MSU – Freshman guard IJ Ready, sophomore guard Craig Sword, sophomore guard Fred Thomas, senior forward Colin Borchert and sophomore center Gavin Ware
KSU – Sophomore forward Nigel Pruitt, sophomore guard Yonel Brown, redshirt freshman forward Bernard Morena, freshman forward Orlando Coleman and sophomore center Willy Kouassi.
Officials: Mike Nance, Jeff Smith and John Hampton
One big thing to watch: The return of Fred Thomas. The sophomore guard missed the season opener for participating in an all-star game not sanctioned by the NCAA. It will be interesting to see how he responds tonight and how well he will be able to shoot the ball.
Pregame song(s): Can’t You See by The Marshall Tucker Band – One of the best Southern Rock songs of all time. These brings back days in the fraternity house for me. Those were great, anyway I hope you enjoy.
