Mississippi State wraps up encouraging 25-win hoops season

Mississippi State basketball took a big jump forward during coach Ben Howland's third season, giving the proud program much-needed hope after several frustrating seasons.

The Bulldogs finished with a 25-12 record, advancing to the semifinals of the NIT before losing 75-60 to Penn State on Tuesday . Mississippi State had hoped to be a part of the NCAA Tournament field, but struggled in the regular season's final weeks to fall out of contention for an at-large bid.

Still, the NIT marked a return to the postseason and a good experience for a team that should bring back all of its main contributors next season.
