STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA/MSU Athletics) – Mississippi State’s Reggie Perry secured three preseason All-America selections as the Bulldogs prepare for their first official team practice of the 2019-20 campaign on Thursday.

Perry collected first-team status from Lindy’s, second-team honors from Street & Smith and third-team accolades from Athlon Sports. He also was tabbed Lindy’s SEC Preseason Player of the Year and earned a consensus All-SEC First-Team nod from the three publications above and Blue Ribbon.

Perry, a 2019 All-SEC Freshman Team pick, captured Most Valuable Player and garnered All-Star 5 Team honors at the 2019 FIBA U19 World Cup in Greece. He poured in 13.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks per game to spearhead Team USA’s gold medal efforts.

Perry registered 12 of his 17 games in double figures versus SEC opponents during his freshman season with the Bulldogs. His 245 total rebounds were third among MSU freshmen only behind Rickey Brown (1976-77) and Erick Dampier (1993-94) in program history. Perry upped his averages to 11.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game in SEC action a season ago.

Nick Weatherspoon came away with All-SEC Third Team and was ranked inside the nation’s top 100 players from Lindy’s. He dialed up 9.6 points, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game last season after he picked up All-SEC Freshman Team in 2017-18.

Mississippi State is offering a pair of new fan-focused season ticket options for the 2019-20 season which includes the addition of general admission seating to men’s basketball. A traditional general admission season ticket for seats in designated areas of the 200 level are available for only $155, while reserved seat season tickets are available for $275.

The second offering is a first-of-its-kind mobile access season ticket, the mobile access pass. This new ticketing option will provide exclusive access to already-sold lower level seats during non-conference games inside Humphrey Coliseum, and a 200 level general admission ticket for all conference games.

During non-conference play, fans with the mobile access pass will be digitally delivered a general admission ticket for a designated lower level section each game and will have access to sit in any open seat within that designated section. The non-conference option is available for $65 whereas the entire season pass is available for $180. Learn more about this new offering at www.HailState.com/accesspass.

Mississippi State posted a 23-11 on-court record last season and secured the program’s 11th NCAA Tournament appearance. The Bulldogs have dialed up 48 on-court victories over the last two seasons which is tied for second-most in program history over a two-year span and fourth among SEC schools.

Mississippi State's roster features a solid nucleus of five returning players who combined for 83 starts and close to 50 percent of the team’s points in Abdul Ado, Tyson Carter, Reggie Perry, Nick Weatherspoon and Robert Woodard II.

The quintet is joined by veteran postmen KeyShawn Feazell and E.J. Datcher along with a talented freshmen class which features Devin Butts, Elias King, Iverson Molinar and Quinten Post. After redshirting the 2018-19 season, Prince Oduro and D.J. Stewart also are ready to make an impact during their first season for the Maroon and White.
