Mississippi state is back in the postseason with their men's hoops program for the first time in six years.
Any postseason basketball is good basketball for a team that could only benefit from more time playing together as the future is undeniably bright.
Ben howland: i think it's great for a young team.
We don't have a senior or anyone that has played in the postseason.
This is a great experience.
My buddy jamie dixon won it last year with tcu and they return and benefitted from it.
I've had teams at pitt that lost in the second round and then the following year went to the sweet 16.
My 3rd year we went to it at northern arizona then our 4th year we went to the ncaa tournament.
It's definitely a plus when you have all playing in that tournament the following year.
