Mississippi State Bulldogs NCAA Tourament Tickets Information

The Mississippi State Bulldogs in the city of Starkville play basketball in the SEC. The Bulldogs weren’t able to participate in the early editions of the NCAA Tournament because of state laws that outlawed collegiate competition in integrated events. However, Mississippi State disregarded these laws and played in the 1963 NCAA Tournament anyways. That was the Bulldogs only NCAA Tournament appearance before the 1990’s, since when they have made nine appearances.

The Bulldogs best NCAA Tournament run came in 1996. Mississippi State won the SEC Tournament to receive an automatic NCAA Tournament bid and received a #5 seed in the Southeast Region. The Bulldogs took care of #12 seed VCU Rams and #13 seed Princeton Tigers in the first two rounds to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. In the Sweet Sixteen, the Bulldogs played the #1 seed Connecticut Huskies and upset them 60-55.
