#6 Mississippi St proves to be too much for Lady Vols

#6 Mississippi St proves to be too much for Lady Vols

Center Teaira McCowan led the way with 24 points, 15 rebounds and three blocked shots, and forward Anriel Howard also had a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

So which side of the Kentucky vs. Mississippi State spread hits in almost 60 percent of simulations?

Kentucky (20-3, 9-1 Southeastern Conference) has won 10 straight games since losing to Alabama in its conference opener on January 5.

The Wildcats hit the road in this one for a matchup with a Mississippi State team that has struggled to find momentum, alternating wins and losses for the past six games. Bre'Amber Scott's 3-pointer with five seconds left in the quarter made if 61-49.

A 13-0 spurt in the first three minutes of the final quarter sealed the victory. They shot 45.5 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from the three-point line while hitting 8-of-10 free throws.

"We talked going into the fourth quarter, we wanted to push that first five minutes", Schaefer said.

Sophomore Evina Westbrook led UT (15-7, 4-5 SEC) in scoring with 18 points, followed closely by sophomore Rennia Davis and senior Meme Jackson, who had 17 apiece.

Calipari wasn't happy with the way his team had played during games with early tipoffs this season, so at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, barely four hours before the noon tipoff, he brought his team to Humphrey Coliseum for a shootaround. Mississippi State led 25-17 after one quarter and 40-34 at halftime.

"I think they have a great opportunity", Warlick said. They are physical and they attack those boards as good as anybody I have seen in a long time. MSU won 71-52 last season in Knoxville, Tennessee, but the Lady Vols, who lead the series 37-4, earned an 82-64 victory against the Bulldogs in the regular-season finale on February 26, 2017, in Starkville.

"Once we turned the defense up, I feel like that's when we're better offensively", Mississippi State guard Nick Weatherspoon said. It also entered Week 14 of the 2018-19 college basketball season on a blistering 90-58 run on top-rated college basketball picks against the spread.

Let us begin today's effort with a question: If I had told you five years ago that Mississippi State's women's basketball team would one day defeat Tennessee by 28 points before more than 10,000 fans at The Hump, what would you have said?

But Mississippi State came up empty on its final possession when Quinndary Weatherspoon lost possession and Kentucky's Johnson came up with the loose ball. Ball movement was disgusting all the way around, and it was the biggest killer in the game. "You can't make a lot of mistakes". They're tough. They grind it out and they are competitors.... The Lady Vols came back with six straight to pull within three. And although it took until the fourth quarter for everything to fully click, Mississippi State became a roaring inferno. Holly Warlick's team was dominated by the No. 6 ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs on the road 91-63. MSU has scored 80 or more points eight time in conference play. They'll have some things to get fixed on that end as they prepare to host LSU and Tennessee over the next week.
