Weatherspoon’s Career Night Lifts Men’s Hoops Past Georgia, 68-67 ...

Quinndary Weatherspoon exploded for a career-best 31 points which included the game-clinching free throw with 0.5 seconds remaining to lift Mississippi State to a 68-67 victory over Georgia on Wednesday at Stegeman Coliseum.

Mississippi State (19-7, 7-6 SEC) captured the program’s first three-game SEC road winning streak dating back to the 2003-04 season when the Bulldogs won all eight of their SEC road games. The victory also enabled Mississippi State to remain in a three-way tie for sixth place with Auburn and Florida in the SEC standings.

For Weatherspoon, he amassed 16 of his 31 points to ignite a 22-1 run over a 4:48 span between the end of the first half and the start of the second half. The 31 points allowed Weatherspoon to surpass Rickey Brown (1977-78-79-80) for fourth place on MSU’s all-time scoring list. He was scalding hot early and connected on 10 of first 12 shot attempts. The Bulldogs improved to 25-3 overall and have won 17 of their last 18 games over the last two seasons when Weatherspoon eclipses the 20-point mark.

With the score tied at 67-67 during the closing seconds, Weatherspoon took the ball coast-to-coast. He used an Abdul Ado screen and was fouled on the game-winning shot attempt just inside the three-point line at the top of the key with 0.5 seconds to go.

Weatherspoon’s first foul shot rimmed out. However, an administrative technical foul was assessed to Georgia after an object was thrown onto the court from the stands during the free throw attempt. Weatherspoon calmly sank the go-ahead free throw. He misfired on his final foul shot, and the remaining time expired after Georgia collected the rebound.

Ado battled to his way to seven points and six rebounds whereas Robert Woodard II garnered all five of his points during the second half and hauled down six rebounds.

Georgia (10-16, 1-12 SEC) outrebounded Mississippi State by a 35-29 margin headed by 14 offensive boards. MSU was able to secure a 26-24 edge in paint points.

FROM THE BENCH WITH COACH HOWLAND

“I feel very fortunate to sneak out of here with a win tonight. I thought that the close of the first half, we did a good job at attacking the rim. Defense and offense led us to an 11-0 run to be up 11 at the half. I think the biggest lead was 17 [at the start of the second half]. They did a great job fighting back. One thing about [Georgia Head Coach] Tom’s [Crean] teams is that they don’t quit. Those guys played incredibly hard, and we’re very fortunate there at the end to not have to go to OT [overtime].”

“I thought Q [Quinndary Weatherspoon] did a good job of waiting to get that shot off late. He was fouled. I don’t know the rule, but I thought we should have got the free throw back. The first one, the front end, when the thing was thrown out there – that was a huge play, someone throwing a little bulldog … That was crazy. He [Weatherspoon] made the first one. I called him over and told him to miss the second one [on purpose] because with 0.5 [seconds] left. It’s hard once it bounces [off the rim] to get it and get the shot off which is what happened. We’re blessed and fortunate.”
