Tonight Mississippi State’s basketball team will take on the Wildcats of Kentucky. Most would chalk that up as a loss. And while most times it probably would be, for some reason I think we have a shot at it. Our guys are super athletic and can really stroke the ball when the energy is right. But their Achilles is the free throw shooting. If it comes down to FT shots…we need to have one of our two freshmen on the line.
But I remember in 1995 (holy cow, 12 years ago) watching freshman Marcus Bullard knock down FT’s to seal a win in Rupp Arena. It was on Valentine’s Day….we called it the Valentine’s Day Massacre.
