Mississippi State women’s basketball took down then 8th ranked University of Texas 79-68 on Sunday and did it in commanding fashion. Vic Schaefer’s squad surged in the second quarter and was up 42-25 at the half as a result. The Bulldogs rode that comfortable lead to their eventual victory, their first over a program ranked in the Top 10 since 2010.
And the victory confirmed that this women’s basketball team should be able to compete, and potentially beat, just about any team in the nation that isn’t named UConn. Vic Schaefer has his team ranked 7th in the nation, tying MSU’s highest ranking in program history, and he’s built the team to be able to make another historic run this season.
The way this lineup is built, there is a wealth of talent and depth at every position. From Morgan William and Victoria Vivians to Domique Dillingham and Roshunda Johnson, Mississippi State has plenty of athletes that can take over and control the game at any given moment. And it isn’t just those four. This entire team is built for the Bulldogs to make another historic run this season.
Mississippi State is 4-0 and will look to stay undefeated as they head to Honolulu this weekend. MSU will take on Oregon on Friday and San Jose State on Saturday. They’ll wrap up their time in Hawaii with facing the University of Hawaii on Sunday.
