FSNextTV: Mississippi State men's freshman basketball player Gavin Ware talks to the media February 25, 2013.
It was two weeks and four losses ago. Yet the example of how Mississippi State began their conference schedule remains clear enough, Gavin Ware said. “So as players we have to come together and find a chemistry again that we had when we won those first two SEC games.”
He’s had four productive games in a rotation role. So moving Gavin Ware onto the tipoff team seemed a good Mississippi State move…not that the true freshman was gushing about his first college start. “It really didn’t matter if I did start or come off the bench,” Ware said. “I still was going to continue to get playing time.”
