STARKVILLE, Miss. – Enjoy a great meal and talk baseball and hoops Thursday as MSU associate head baseball coach Butch Thompson will be the guest speaker for the first of six Hail State Hoops luncheons this season.

In addition to Thompson, attendees will hear from head coach Vic Schaefer, his staff, and members of the 7-1 Bulldog basketball team.

Hail State Hoops will host six luncheons this season in Mize Pavilion, with doors opening at 11:15 a.m. Cost is $12 per luncheon or $60 for all six dates. In addition to lunch and the program, attendees will be entered for the chance to win some great door prizes.

To RSVP, contact the MSU women’s basketball office at (662) 325-0198.

Thompson helped Mississippi State to one of the most-memorable seasons in school history, as the Bulldogs advanced to the final of the College World Series. Thompson was named one of the top assistants in college baseball by Perfect Game after his 2013 staff finished in the Top 15 nationally in ERA, strikeouts per nine innings and hits allowed per nine innings.

His staff finished in the top two nationally in double plays, and he had five Bulldog pitchers selected in the MLB Draft.

Mississippi State basketball returns to action Wednesday, hosting Louisiana-Lafayette at 7 p.m.
