The Kentucky Wildcats have Mississippi State’s number. Now winning their 11th in a row, The Wildcats got past the Bulldogs 78-75 in OT. The Bulldogs got into foul trouble very quickly with McCowan getting two fouls in the 1st quarter. Dominque Dillingham fouled out in the final minutes of the 4th quarter. And at one point 4 Bulldog players were on the court with 4 or more fouls.

Mississippi State was sloppy turning over the ball 22 times compared to Kentucky’s 9. Victoria Vivians had another great night in Lexington scoring 27 points.

The Bulldogs face Tennessee Sunday at 4pm for a chance at the SEC Title. Depending on what SC does determines if it will be outright or if it will be for a co championship. Irregardless this team lost 2 tough conference road games. Having a chance to win a SEC Championship is a credit to Vic Schaefer and the Seniors for turning this program around. Senior Day is also Sunday.
