WATCH: Miss State’s Ben Howland recaps largest win over Power 5 opponent in program history

Mississippi State used a total team effort on both sides of the floor to put a 3-game losing streak in the rear view mirror with a convincing 95-56 victory over Iowa State during Saturday’s SEC/Big 12 Challenge matchup at Humphrey Coliseum.

The 39-point margin of victory matches State’s largest of the season with an 87-48 rout of Mississippi Valley State on 12/21/2020. It also marked the Bulldogs largest margin of victory over a current Power 5 non-conference opponent in program history. The previous mark was a 75-47 win over Florida State on 12/10/1951.

Mississippi State head basketball coach Ben Howland along with players Tolu Smith and Deivon Smith all met with the media postgame to discuss the big win. Video is courtesy of the SEC and Hail State Athletics.
