Mississippi State faces UNVL in Vegas Classic finals

(RNN) - Mississippi State (9-2) won its fourth straight game when it slipped by South Florida 71-66 on Sunday to advance the finals against the UNLV Runnin' Rebels at Orleans Arena on Monday night. The game tips at 10:30 p.m. ET, but is not being broadcast on TV.

UNLV (7-4) dropped Santa Clara 92-71 for its fourth-straight win, also on Sunday.

Gavin Ware scored 10 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to help the Bulldogs past USF, and continued its tough defensive play.
