From Brandon Marcello of the Clarion Ledger: “Renardo Sidney‘s digits are apparently popular here at Rupp Arena tonight. The cell phone of the sophomore forward has been the recipient of many phone calls today from Kentucky area code(s). Sidney has not answered his phone, an MSU spokesman said. This is nothing new between MSU and Kentucky. The phone number of Kentucky’s DeMarcus Cousins was passed among the MSU faithful last season before the Bulldogs hosted the Wildcats.”
Mississippi State head coach Rick Stansbury was asked about the phone calls by Marcello during the postgame press conference but Stansbury didn’t seem to know what he was referring to and commented that he believed he probably got more calls from Kentucky area codes today than Sidney did.
