Head coach Chris Jans and his team finished last season with a 21-14 record, which ended in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament against Michigan State.

Mississippi State’s efforts on the basketball court did not go unnoticed by the school, as the university showered them with accolades a few weeks ago during the 2024 Maroon And White Night.

The team itself earned five awards, with two returning players taking home at least one honor.

Guard Josh Hubbard was named Male Freshman of the Year as he earned spots on the All-SEC Freshman Team, All-SEC Second Team and was the recipient of the Bailey Howell Trophy, awarded annually to the top men’s basketball player. in the state of Mississippi by then Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame.

Forward Cameron Matthews was named Male Breakout Athlete of the Year. The All-SEC Defensive Team member has been known for his versatility throughout the season, as he finished in the top 3 for the Bulldogs in every statistical category.

But perhaps the most notable achievement of the night went to the entire men’s basketball team: they won the Moment of the Year, which is awarded to the biggest win of the year in all of sports. This comes off the back of the Bulldogs’ 77-72 upset over No. 5 Tennessee on Jan. 10. The Bulldogs made school history in this SEC matchup as it was their first victory over an AP Top 10 team since 2002.
