On Nov. 18, the winners will meet for the 2K Sports Classic crown, preceded by the consolation game at 3:30 p.m. Once again, both games will be televised live on ESPN2.

A Look At The Series

The Bulldogs’ matchup with the Aggies will mark the first meeting between the two since 1966 when MSU claimed a 62-49 victory at the USM Invitational in Hattiesburg, Miss. The only other outing resulted in A&M upending Mississippi State, 58-54, in the 1963 Bluebonnet Tournament in Houston.


While MSU has never faced St. John’s, the Bulldogs are 1-2 against Arizona.


In their last meeting, the Wildcats won 68-64 in the 2004 John R. Wooden Classic in Anaheim, Calif. However, in the 2000 Bank One Fiesta Bowl Classic, Mississippi State stunned Arizona in the finals, 75-74. Their first outing came in 1970 at the Poinsettia Classic in Greenville, S.C., with the Wildcats claiming a 77-75 victory.
