Mississippi State podcast: With NIT run, MSU basketball looks like a team that will make a giant leap forward next season

Mississippi State basketball is headed to New York City. Thanks to an impressive 23-point victory on the road at Louisville Tuesday night, MSU men’s basketball will head to Madison Square Garden for the NIT Final 4 next week. The win at Louisville is the latest in a 3-game run that has shown MSU’s full potential for next season, when every single playmaker will be back. More Cowbell host Brandon Walker was already confident about MSU’s NCAA Tournament chances next season, but this run through the NIT shows how good MSU can eventually be.
Elsewhere, MSU started spring practice on Tuesday, the first practice ever under coach Joe Moorhead. The Bulldogs bring back a loaded roster for 2018 and there are plenty of reasons for fans to be excited. One of those reasons is quarterback Nick Fitzgerald, who looked much further along than expected in his recovery from last season’s injury.
