Mississippi State University has hired Clemson assistant Rick Ray as its new head basketball coach.

The 40-year-old Ray previously spent four years as an assistant at Purdue University under Matt Painter.

Ray, who is the 19th head basketball coach hired by the school in the 100 years of the program’s history, replaces Rick Stansbury, who retired after 14 seasons with a record of 293-165 in all games and an SEC record of 122-102.

Brendan Gibbons kicked a 37-yard field goal in overtime to give 13th-ranked Michigan to a 23-20 win over #17 Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

The win ended a comeback to the heights of college football for the Michigan program under first-year head coach Brady Hoke, who led the Wolverines to an 11-2 record a BCS game.

QB Denard Robinson did not dominate the game, but threw touchdown passes of 45 and 18 yards to Junior Hemingway.

Robinson was 9 of 21 passes for 117 yards for 117 yards and an interception and rushed for only 13 yards.

Hemingway was selected as the player of the game for his two-touchdown effort. He finished the game with two pass receptions for 63 yards.

Virginia Tech, who finished the year at 11-3, more than doubled Michigan’s offensive total yardage, 377 to 184, and collected 22 first downs to the Wolverines’ 12 but had trouble scoring TD’s and settle for four field goals in regulation by placekicker Justin Myer, a third-stringer.

Unfortunately, Myer missed on his fifth field goal try from 37 yards out on the opening possession of overtime.


*The Virginia Tech Hokies under Frank Beamer at 11-3 did not win a conference championship. They lost twice to Clemson by a combined 48 points, including a 38-10 humiliation in the ACC title game.

*In BCS games, the Hokies are 1-5.

*The Hokies strong pass rush created 38 sacks in 2011.

*Virginia Tech relied on their 12th-ranked defense to control games.

*Michigan’s are 12th in the nation in rushing with 235.7 yards a game, and QB Denard Robinson (96.9-yard average) and RB Fitzgerald Toussaint (91.9) were the big-time playmakers.

*Michigan head coach Brady Hoke turned around Ball State, San Diego State and now Michigan and earned the 2011 Big Ten Coach of the Year honors.

*The Wolverines’ BCS record is 2-3.

* Denard Robinson ended the year with some impressive totals: rushed for 1,163 yards and passed for 2,056 yards and accounted for 34 touchdowns overall.

WRIGHT STATE visits OHIO STATE: WSU’s Donlon ready to use own recruits in second season

The Wright State Raiders will try to upset the Ohio State Buckeyes when they travel to Columbus tonight for a Big Ten Network game at Value City Arena at 9 p.m.

The Raiders head coach Billy Donlon looks just as young as his players.

Only 34 years old, Donlon is a coach on the rise in just his second-year. He took over last season, when his mentor, Brad Brownell bolted for Clemson as soon as Oliver Purnell left to take the job at DePaul.

Donlon earned a 19-14 mark, 10-8 in the tough Horizon League, good for 5th-place.

This year, armed with many of his own recruits, he is looking to improve on those records of a year ago.

Some experts who cover the Horizon League feel that this is a rebuilding job for Donlon and his staff. The only returning starter is 6’8, 245-pound center Johann Mpondo, who takes up space in the middle, plays good defense and rebounds.

There are seven newcomers on the roster and one of those is North Carolina State transfer Julius Mays, who is a shooting guard with two years of eligibility left. He is much better than the 4.7 points per game he earned with the Wolfpack.

Junior college transfer John Balwigaire shot 44.o percent from three-point land last year.

The other two players who have experience under Donlon is Cole Darling and Matt Vest.

The Raiders usually are good for 15-20 wins a season. And with Donlon at the helm, he won’t settle for rebuilding.
