Mississippi State's Nick Weatherspoon out of hospital after Friday night injury

Tennessee vs. Mississippi State - 3/9/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Volunteers defeated the Bulldogs 62-59 as second-seeded Tennessee (24-7) led almost the entire game, but the Bulldogs (22-11) had an opportunity to take the lead in the final 10 seconds. A courtside reporter on the SEC Network said Weatherspoon was conscious and responding to medical staff.

Mississippi State lost to Tennessee in a closely contested match, 62-59. Quinndary and Nick Weatherspoon tied with 15 points each, with Quinndary shooting 6 of 14 with 6 assists of his own and 3 steals while Nick shot 6 of 8.

"The play on which Nick Weatherspoon was injured unfolded in a rapid sequence of events that led to the continuation of play after Nick initially fell under the Mississippi State basket", said Mark Whitehead, SEC Coordinator of Officials.

Peters made two 3-pointers and Weatherspoon converted a three-point play as the Bulldogs got within 51-49.

"I don't think we've outrebounded someone like that all year", Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said.

Junior forward Admiral Schofield added 13 points and SEC Player of the Year Grant Williams had 10 as Tennessee beat the Bulldogs (22-11) for the second time this season, having prevailed 76-54 on February 27 in Starkville, Miss. "We were chasing balls down".

Tennessee had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 9 at one point.

MSU freshman Nick Weatherspoon had his neck placed in a brace and was taken from the court on a stretcher in the second half after injuring his right hip and having his head accidentally stepped on by Tennessee junior forward Kyle Alexander while Weatherspoon was prone. The SEC released a statement on the matter.

"I'm excited for our team to get a chance to play in the postseason", Howland said. "Again, it's one of those bang-bang plays". Tennessee went up by 7 coming into the second half, 31-24. Despite the uncertainty about their teammate, the Bulldogs did not let the Vols take control of the game at any time. "We talked about it a lot, not so much offensively where we want to go get it, but trying to do it on the defensive end".

Tennessee led by as many as nine points with eight minutes remaining but an 11-3 run by the Bulldogs assured that things would be interesting the rest of the way. "Give them credit for their determination and making plays and staying in it".
