What to Watch For

Jazzmun Holmes’ versatility

Holmes has panned out to be a reliable point guard and leader in her senior season. Having said that, it is on defense that Holmes has truly stepped up her game. A spark plug and capable of setting the tone at any point, Holmes’ 52 steals have spoke volumes.

Offensively, Holmes fills the stat line with ease. Though she averages 7.3 points, it is her 145 assists and 59 rebounds that stand out, as Holmes excels at creating opportunities for teammates. Expect Holmes to have a well versed outing and lead the team in assists and steals.

Jordan Danberry as a shooter

Danberry has been a surprise offensively, as her numerous 20-point games have led the Bulldogs to crucial wins this season. While she is known for her defense, Danberry has become a primary weapon in Mississippi State’s offensive attack. She is averaging 13.2 points and 3.4 rebounds on the year. In addition, Danberry has accumulated 95 assists.

Like Holmes, Danberry can also create open shots for teammates, as her 95 assists have been key all year long. Look for Danberry to have another 20-point performance coupled with a few rebounds and game changing assists. The senior guard has been on a roll, as she is sure to have a day.

Prediction

Mississippi State runs past LSU, 91-64
