Vic Schaefer’s team just keeps winning. And they’re continuing to crush teams while they do it. Mississippi State’s margin of victory last night was larger than the point total that Vanderbilt put up.
The Bulldogs jumped out to a hot start, leading the Commodores 23-6 after the first quarter. And it’s not like it got any better for Vanderbilt from there. MSU simply did not take its foot off the gas.
At half, Mississippi State had a 42-15 lead. Victoria Vivians had outscored Vanderbilt on her own at that point.
Mississippi State would cruise in the second half, outscoring Vandy 44-26, giving MSU the 86-41 victory.
Victoria Vivians paced the Bulldogs in points with 21, despite playing only 20 minutes. Roshunda Johnson was second on the team with 17 in 13 minutes points. Breanna Richardson was the third Bulldog to score in double digits with 12 points last night.
MSU out rebounded Vanderbilt by 11, beat the Commodores in turnovers by 13, and had 9 more assists last night. There simply was no significant category that would even hint that Vanderbilt could compete with State last night. Vic Schaefer’s team is simply playing on a different level than most teams in the nation and has been all year.
The third ranked Bulldogs advanced to 24-1 and 10-1 in the SEC with the win. Schaefer’s squad is heading up to Oxford to take on Ole Miss this Sunday, looking to beat the Rebels for a 7th consecutive time.
