What to Watch For

Andra Espinoza-Hunter in the paint

While Espinoza-Hunter is a proven sniper from distance, she is quick in the paint and can get to the basket. The junior guard is emerging into an overall scorer and will soon have an all-round offensive game. Expect Espinoza-Hunter to make the most of her minutes on the floor.

Known to be somewhat streaky as a shooter, Espinoza-Hunter is developing a steady shot. A spark plug when needed, Espinoza-Hunter should be in double figures and set the tone early. Averaging 7.3 points per game, look that number to increase.

Jessika Carter on defense.

Having gotten back on track as a rebounder, Carter has become a lethal weapon defensively. With 69 defensive boards and 29 blocks on the season, Carter should make an immediate impact in tomorrow’s game. Though she has been a bit inconsistent, Carter is well aware of he role on defense.

As Vic Schaefer is known to be one of the game’s best defensive minds, he is heavily reliant upon Carter as the team’s primary leader down low. Look for Carter to post a Double-double as well as numerous blocks and/or steals.

Prediction

Mississippi State earns their twelfth win, blows by Little Rock 102 - 70
