Interview: Mississippi State head coach Vic Schaefer on embracing the moment, yet staying focused on task at hand


DALLAS, TX – Mississippi State head coach Vic Schaefer has already made a huge statement in his return to his home state of Texas, shocking the sports world when his second-seeded Bulldogs knocked off top-seeded Connecticut in a hard-earned, overtime victory in the Final Four.  The thrilling upset just also happened to snap the Huskies 111-game winning streak.
