Mississippi State 82, Santa Clara 69 (OT)
Dec. 3, 2005
Head Coach Dick Davey: You really have to give credit to Mississippi State. They stepped up in the overtime and hit the big shots. We didn't. This game was two young teams trying to grow and get better. We are a young team that is trying to find itself and it is tough to win on the road with a young team, as we showed today. It is a little easier with a young team when you are at home. Going on the road, at this stage, is a little tough for us."
