Mississippi State Coach Rick Stansbury WAS on the Bench for the First game of
the SEC/Big East Challenge against home team Cincinnati Thursday night.
Stansbury had been Hospitalized since Sunday with a Viral infection.
He was released in time to join his team against the Bearcats..
The Bulldogs quickly found themselves down 22 points...but Big Man Jarvis Vernado helped lead a 19-to-4 run to get State back in the game.
Vernado with a Game high 24 points..
But, Cincy regains its' stroke in the final 9-Minutes...to extend the lead back to double Digits..
Definitely not good for Stansbury's Health.
Cincinnati wins it..final 75-63.
The Bearcats come to Memphis to face the Tigers December 29th at FedExForum.
