It did not end the way Mississippi State fans wanted. Mississippi State’s magical run through the women’s NCAA Tournament included the program’s first-ever Final Four berth, wins over two No. 1 seeds and, of course, one of the most memorable wins in women’s college basketball history. But despite the win over UConn in the national semifinal, Mississippi State came up short in the national championship game and watched South Carolina celebrate its first title.
So how will State fans remember this run? Will the disappointment over the South Carolina loss linger, or will positive memories from ending UConn’s streak become the dominant storyline that people talk about for years to come? On today’s More Cowbell podcast, host Brandon Walker discusses this question and provides an answer.

Look no further than first-year coach Andy Cannizaro.
