Mississippi State women’s basketball continues to make history.
The Bulldogs moved to 28-0 on the season Sunday night, clinching their first-ever SEC title in the process. They got it done thanks to a 76-55 win over Texas A&M.
Mississippi State still has two games left in the regular season before entering SEC Tournament action. Coach Vic Schaefer and the Bulldogs lost to South Carolina in the league title game last season, and also lost to the Gamecocks in the National Championship Game one month later.
Victoria Vivians (19.9 points per game) and Teaira McCowan (18.8) are the stars of the team, and they will both be key as the Bulldogs move toward the postseason.
Blair Schaefer and Roshunda Johnson are the team’s sharpshooters, each making over 40 percent of their 3-pointers this season. Morgan William leads the squad in assists, with nearly 5 per game.
Should Mississippi State meet No. 1 UConn in the championship game this season, it won’t have any fear — the Bulldogs defeated the Huskies and their 111-game winning streak in the 2017 Final Four.
The SEC tournament begins on Feb. 28 and will be played in Nashville, Tenn.
