Sits due to contact tracing Smith was held out of Thursday's 68-67 win over Richmond in the NIT tournament due to COVID-19 contact tracing, Tyler Horka of The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports.
Impact Smith hadn't missed a game all season prior to Thursday, but the Bulldogs managed to pull out a win over Richmond with Javian Davis filling in at center. Mississippi State will play Saturday against an opponent yet to be determined, and it's unclear if Smith will be able to return in just two days. If that's the case, Davis, who registered five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and seven rebounds while committing two turnovers, figures to start again.
