Borges vs Miami

by Caleb Garner, Graduate Assistant/Communications

HARLINGEN, Texas/TUSCALOOSA, Ala.
– An impressive fall continued for Mississippi State's Nuno Borges on Thursday, with the senior taking a quick straight-set victory in the Round of 16 at the 2018 USTA Harlingen (Texas) Futures.
 
The two-time All-American Borges moved on to the quarterfinals by taking a 6-2, 6-3 decision against 2017 ITA Singles All-American Jack Findel-Hawkins (ATP 813).
 
Borges breezed through the first set, taking the 6-2 decision by once again holding serve effectively. Additionally, the Maia, Porto, Portugal, product took two of his three break point opportunities to go up a set.
 
In the second set, Borges picked up where he left off and did not have his serve broken the entire match—going an impressive 8-for-8 against Findel-Hawkins. Borges went on to cruise past the Brit with a 6-3 decision in the second to move on to Friday's quarterfinal match. There, the reigning SEC Player of the Year will take on former Memphis standout Andrew Watson (ATP 837), who reached the quarterfinals after playing through the qualifying draw.
 
 
ITA Southern Regional Qualifying
In Tuscaloosa, MSU sophomore newcomer Stedman Strickland kicked off his Bulldog career on Thursday in singles qualifying at the 2018 ITA Southern Regional Championships. The Jackson, Mississippi, native dropped a tough 6-3, 6-3 decision to Ole Miss rookie Jan Soeren Hain in the first round.
 
Strickland's day was not done, however, as he took on Samford's Rossouw Norval in consolation. In that match, Strickland continued his tough play, forcing a first set tiebreaker against Norval. There, the Samford sophomore took a 7-4 decision to take the set before taking the match with a 6-2 decision in the second set.
 
In the 32-player singles main draw which begins Saturday, MSU's fifth-ranked Giovanni Oradini earned the top seed and is set to take the court at approximately 1 p.m. Saturday. Also at 1, sophomore Florian Broska will face South Alabama's No. 122 Clement Marzol in the opening round while 109th-ranked senior Niclas Braun squares off against Alabama's Zhe Zhou.
 
At 2:30 p.m. Saturday, MSU's fourth-seeded and 43rd-ranked Strahinja Rakic will make his debut this weekend. At the same time, fellow senior Trevor Foshey will take on Tulane's Tim Ruetzel.
 
Last season's ITA Southern Regionals, held in Baton Rouge, La., saw an all-Bulldog singles final between Oradini and Rakic, with Rakic coming out on top in straight-set fashion.
 
On the doubles court, a pair of MSU duos garnered top-five seeds in this week's main draw in State's seventh-ranked duo of Braun and Oradini, seeded second, along with the fifth-seeded tandem of Broska and Rakic. Foshey and Strickland will also team up for the first time this weekend in the doubles main draw.
 
All three duos take the court at 9 a.m. Saturday in the second round (first-round byes), with Braun and Oradini taking on Samford's Jack Lyttle and Rossouw Norval. Broska and Rakic will face Auburn's Diego Chavarria and Lorenzo Rodriguez, while Foshey and Strickland square off against Mieszko Kwasnieweski and Jorman Reyes of Southern Miss.

Alabama Recap Photo

by Mary Catherine Molay, Graduate Assistant/Communications

TUSCALOOSA, Ala.- During its second Wednesday (Oct. 17) matchup of the season, Mississippi State fell to Alabama in three on ESPNU.
 
Mississippi State (5-16, 1-7 SEC) fell to Alabama (16-6, 3-5 SEC) 25-17, 28-26, 25-15. 
 
"Another tough road battle for the Dawgs," head coach Julie Darty said. "I think our middles are showing to be pretty consistent and efficient for us when we pass the ball. When we stay in system and can get them swings, it's a really great product that we are putting out there. But when everybody is not completely dialed in to do their job and follow that game plan with laser-like focus, it can get pretty dicey out there. We have a couple of days of practice to get ready for [Ole Miss], but this is a top league top to bottom. There's not a single team that you can take lightly and get off of the gas pedal for one second. Alabama turned it on in that third set, and we really need to find a way to respond and understand that these are long, gritty matches that we have to be in. We have to find a way to finish and compete."
 
Mississippi State found itself on the board first to start the match. Set one featured a lot of back and forth as there were three lead changes, and the score was tied five time. During the middle of the first set and going forward, the Bulldogs struggled to stop Alabama's attack and block game. The Crimson Tide went on two different runs of five points or more to pull ahead, 21-13. Mississippi State fought back toward the end, but could not stop the Crimson Tide's attack game. Alabama took the set on a kill. Paige Shaw had three kills and seven digs. Amarrah Cooks and Deja Robinson had two kills apiece. 
 
Mississippi State went on a three point streak to start set two and pulled ahead, 3-1. Set two featured more aggressiveness as the whole set was tight with no other team being more than two points ahead. While trailing by one, Mississippi State pushed ahead to 15-13 after back-to-back kills by Robinson and an attack error by Alabama to force the media timeout. After three straight kills by Haskins to give MSU the chance to win the set, 24-23, Alabama battled back to force the set into extra points and win, 28-26. Robinson had seven kills and a .538 hitting percentage. Shaw and Haskins had four kills each. Gabby Zgunda tallied eight digs. Both squads notched 19 kills and 30 digs. Mississippi State finished the set with a .228 hitting percentage in comparison to Alabama's .200. 
 
Mississippi State went on a 3-0 run off of Alabama errors to start the third set. After a 7-0 stint by the Crimson Tide, The Bulldogs trailed 13-8. From there, Mississippi State struggled to stop Alabama's attack game. Errors proved to be the achilles heel for MSU as Alabama went on to win the set and the match. Cooks, Morgan Kath and Robinson all had two kills. Kendall Murr and Shaw had four digs apiece.
 
To wrap up week nine of play, Mississippi State travels to face in-state rival Ole Miss on Sunday, Oct. 21. The match is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and will be televised on the SEC Network .
 
Dawg Bites from Wednesday
  • Robinson had 11 kills and a .524 hitting percentage
  • Murr led the team with 15 digs
  • Cooks and Shaw each had seven kills

Match Day Arkansas

by Brian Ogden, Assistant Coordinator/Communications

STARKVILLE
– Mississippi State is on the bubble. The No. 25/25 Bulldogs are currently in a tie for 10th in the SEC standings, but would not make the conference tournament thanks to the tie-breaking procedure.
 
MSU will look to pave its path to Orange Beach, Alabama, with a win over Arkansas on Thursday night. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. CT with the match airing on SEC Network .
 
The Razorbacks, who are receiving votes in the United Soccer Coaches' poll, currently sit in fourth in the league, and a win would get the Bulldogs to double-digits in points.
 
"(Arkansas head coach) Colby (Hale) has done a spectacular job there," head coach Tom Anagnost said. "Arkansas is a physical, tough and great team. We need to step up our game against them."
 
The Bulldogs are looking to beat the Razorbacks for the first time since 2015, which was also the last time State won three conference matches. In Starkville, the Razorbacks lead the series 9-2.
 
Arkansas leads the league in corner kicks (113) and is third in shots (269). They are coming off a 4-0 victory over Kentucky last week.
 
Despite leading the SEC with 13 freshmen, MSU's youth has proven to be an asset this season. Freshmen have earned 36 of the Bulldogs' 90 points this season (40 percent). Six different newcomers have tallied a point this year.
 
State will travel to Oxford, Mississippi on Sunday, Oct. 21 to face Ole Miss in a nationally-televised match on ESPNU. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m.

Strickland 91818

by Caleb Garner, Graduate Assistant/Communications

STARKVILLE/HARLINGEN, Texas – After a successful run at the 2018 ITA All-American Championships two weeks ago, six members of the Mississippi State men's tennis team look to continue that success this week at the 2018 ITA Southern Regional Championships.
 
The tournament, held at the Alabama Tennis Stadium in Tuscaloosa, runs from Oct. 18-23. State is one of 13 programs in the field featuring teams from Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana, and is one of five Southeastern Conference teams represented along with host Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss and LSU. Live scoring will not be available, but live video for courts 1-6 at the Alabama Tennis Stadium will be available.
 
Singles finalists and doubles champions of the ITA Southern Regionals advance to the Oracle ITA National Fall Championships, held Nov. 7-11 in Surprise, Arizona. State already has three qualifiers for the Oracle event in Nuno Borges (singles) and Borges and Strahinja Rakic (doubles) and Niclas Braun and Giovanni Oradini (doubles).
 
Bulldog newcomer Stedman Strickland is set to make his MSU debut at 11 a.m. Thursday against Ole Miss freshman Jan Soeren Hain in the Southern Region's singles qualifying draw. The winner moves on to face Auburn's Tad Maclean, a 9-16 seed, at approximately 3 p.m. Thursday. The final round of qualifying will be Friday.
 
In the 32-player singles main draw which begins Saturday, MSU's fifth-ranked Oradini earned the top seed and is set to take the court at approximately 1 p.m. Saturday. Also at 1, sophomore Florian Broska will face South Alabama's No. 122 Clement Marzol in the opening round while 109th-ranked senior Niclas Braun squares off against Alabama's Zhe Zhou.
 
At 2:30 p.m. Saturday, MSU's fourth-seeded and 43rd-ranked Rakic will make his debut this weekend. At the same time, fellow senior Trevor Foshey will take on Tulane's Tim Ruetzel. In the spring, Foshey notched a critical 6-4, 7-6(6) victory against Ruetzel to clinch State's 4-3 win against the Green Wave in New Orleans.
 
Last season's ITA Southern Regionals, held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, saw an all-Bulldog singles final between Oradini and Rakic, with Rakic coming out on top in straight-set fashion.
 
On the doubles court, a pair of MSU duos garnered top-five seeds in this week's main draw in State's seventh-ranked duo of Braun and Oradini, seeded second, along with the fifth-seeded tandem of Broska and Rakic. Foshey and Strickland will also team up for the first time this weekend in the doubles main draw.
 
All three duos take the court at 9 a.m. Saturday in the second round (first-round byes), with Braun and Oradini taking on Samford's Jack Lyttle and Rossouw Norval. Broska and Rakic will face Auburn's Diego Chavarria and Lorenzo Rodriguez, while Foshey and Strickland square off against Mieszko Kwasnieweski and Jorman Reyes of Southern Miss.
 
 
Borges Moves On At Harlingen Futures
Meanwhile, in Harlingen, Texas, the two-time All-American Borges got off to a great start in the USTA Futures held at the Harlingen Country Club Wednesday, taking a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 triumph over Henry Craig (ATP 716). After dropping a 6-3 decision in the first set to the former two-time Summit League Player of the Year Craig, the third-seeded Borges shined on serve, winning all five of his service games to claim the second, 6-3.
 
In the third, Borges held strong, taking a quick 4-1 lead out of the gate. Craig responded by winning two of the next three games to cut Borges' lead to 5-4. The SEC Player of the Year Borges then held at 40-15 to take the set and match. In Thursday's Round of 16, Borges is set to face another former NCAA standout in 2017 NCAA Quarterfinalist Jack Findel-Hawkins (ATP 813), who starred at North Florida.

By Brock Turnipseed, Associate Director/Communications

STARKVILLE – Seniors Jazzmun Holmes and Teaira McCowan will head to Birmingham, Alabama, on Thursday with head coach Vic Schaefer for SEC Tipoff '19.

Schaefer's Bulldogs were tabbed by select SEC and national media members to repeat as the league champion. Last season, MSU won 37 games, second-most in SEC history, and captured the program's first conference crown en route to advancing to the national championship game for the second-straight year.

NEW YORK –
No. 22 Mississippi State's offensive line was named to the Joe Moore Award's midseason honor roll Tuesday. The Joe Moore Award is named in honor of Joe Moore, who was a long time offensive line coach at the collegiate level.
 
The Bulldogs were one of 14 offensive lines honored by the Joe Moore Foundation for Teamwork.  Semifinalists for the Joe Moore Award will be announced on Nov. 20 and finalists will be revealed on Dec. 4. Selection of the 2018 Joe Moore Award winner will be made public after a surprise visit to the winning university's campus in late December.
 
In addition to MSU, the teams on the honor roll include No. 1 Alabama, Appalachian State, Army, Boston College, No. 8 Georgia, No. 14 Kentucky, Memphis, No. 16 NC State, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 9 Oklahoma, No. 12 Oregon, No. 7 Texas, and No. 23 Wisconsin.
 
Five Things To Know About MSU's Offensive Line
1. MSU is the only school in the SEC with two players in the top 10 in rushing yards per game: quarterback Nick Fitzgerald (102.6) is fourth, and running back Kylin Hill is sixth (79).
 
2. The Bulldogs are the SEC's top rushing offense (240.7), with a league leading "Quality Rush" percentage (rush either results in a first down or greatly increases the chances of gaining a first down on the next play) of 62.9%, which is 13.8% better than the league average.
 
3. Led by Rimington Trophy candidate center Elgton Jenkins, State's offensive line has helped pave the way for three 300-yard rushing games (the most in the SEC and the second most in the Power 5).
 
4. MSU's offense is tops in the SEC in yards per rush at 6.0. The Bulldogs most recently averaged 6.1 yards per rush against then-No. 8 Auburn on Oct. 6 and finished with 349 yards. The 349 yards were MSU's most in an SEC game since grounding out 457 at Ole Miss on Nov. 26, 2016.
 
5. Four different Bulldogs have combined for seven individual 100-yard rushing games in 2018, led by Fitzgerald who has eclipsed the century mark three times. MSU has had multiple 100-yard rushers in three games this season.
