The West Point Green Wave was searching for a signature win to open the 2013-14 basketball season.
A program that waited over 20 seasons to claim a district title in 2012 — its first district title since 1989 — the Wave had not been as well renowned for their prowess on the hardwood, unlike West Point's football program on the gridiron.

Many Mississippi State football fans possibly did not expect a 6-6 record coming during the 2013 football season.
Possibly these fans were still inebriated by the success of baseball Head Coach John Cohen and the Diamond Dogs finishing second place to the UCLA Bruins at the College World Series in June, or maybe the eight-win season in 2012 gave the Bulldog faithful a new outlook on life. Either way, not many State fans thought the Bulldogs would be fighting for bowl eligibility in the final two weeks of the regular season.
