ABOUT EAST TENNESSEE STATE (7-2): The Buccaneers are averaging better than 80 points per contest, but the home-road split is a dramatic one; East Tennessee State averages a robust 86 points in winning all seven of its home games, but has managed just 60 points per contest in two games away from Johnson City. Senior guard T.J. Cromer (17.4 points per game) is the only Buccaneers player averaging double figures in scoring; he had a dismal showing against the Flyers, shooting just 1-for-11 from the field en route to four points in 28 minutes. Hanner Mosquera-Perea (9.0 points, 5.3 rebounds) has been a stabilizing force, shooting nearly 61 percent from the field, while Desonta Bradford has been versatile in averaging 8.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and a team-best 4.7 assists.

ABOUT MISSISSIPPI STATE (6-2)
: Peters single-handedly led the Bulldogs back from an early deficit against the Panthers, scoring 14 consecutive Mississippi State points in the middle portion of the first half. Team scoring leader Quinndary Weatherspoon (18.3 points) added the go-ahead 3-pointer two possessions later to give the Bulldogs a lead it wouldn’t surrender; Weatherspoon had 14 points while adding four steals, giving him 2.7 thefts per game on the season – the 12th-best rate in the nation. Senior guard I.J. Ready (12.1 points, 5.1 assists) has been a solid contributor but continues to struggle from beyond the arc, making just six of his 21 attempts from 3-point range – including 1-of-6 over his past two games.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Bulldogs listed as 4-point favorites versus the Buccaneers, while the game’s total is sitting at 145 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40

Lamar Peters is wide awake, and has Mississippi State looking for its first four-game winning streak of the season Wednesday night as it entertains East Tennessee State. The Bulldogs have won their last three games by an average of 15 points and are coming off an impressive 82-60 drubbing of Georgia State.

Peters had the best game of his young collegiate career last time out, pouring in 24 points on the strength of six 3-pointers. The freshman sent a message to both coach Ben Howland and the rest of his teammates after being forced to miss a 65-59 win over Northwestern State last week when he overslept and missed the pre-game shootaround. “I guess it was time for me to wake up,” said Peters, who added six assists and four rebounds in the one-sided victory. “I knew I owed it to my team and it was selfish of me to oversleep like that.” The Bulldogs would be wise not to sleep on East Tennessee State, which is coming off a 75-61 loss to Dayton but is off to a sizzling start.
