Sidney should play for Mississippi St. … eventually

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury chooses not to discuss Renardo Sidney’s eligibility situation.
But Sidney’s attorney, Donald Jackson, doesn’t have the same gag order.
Yet they both have come to the same conclusion: that ultimately the onetime USC recruit will likely play for the Bulldogs. Getting to that point, whenever it comes, is still a work in progress.
“We’ll be a good team with or without Sidney, but it’s obvious we’ll be a much better team with him,” Stansbury said of the 6-foot-9 Jackson, Miss., native and former Fairfax High (Calif.) star forward.
