    From talk of splitting the state into two divisions based on enrollment to moving the state tournament away from Frankfort, changes could be inevitable.

    If you think it doesn’t happen, look at Exhibit A from Tuesday night at Rupp Arena.

    With Mississippi State leading by five points in the closing seconds of the first half, a bizarre turn of events changed the complexion of the game and caused Bulldogs coach Rick Stansbury to lose his cool.
