GAME OF CHANGE REMATCH — On Sunday, Mississippi State met Loyola University Chicago on the hardwood for first time in Humphrey Coliseum. The first time the teams met, in the "Game of Change" at the 1963 NCAA Tournament, Mississippi State defied an unwritten state law prohibiting teams from playing integrated teams. Here, 1963 players Stan Brinker, former Bulldog, and Jerry Harkness, former Rambler, shake hands just as the team captains shook hands in 1963. Mississippi State lost the tournament match 50 years ago, 51-61, but the Bulldogs won Sunday's rematch in overtime, 65-64. Learn more about the "Game of Change" here.
