Broadcast Information

The game is at 3 p.m. CT and can be watched on the SEC Network.

What to Watch For

Rickea Jackson on the offensive end

Jackson has been nothing short of sensational scoring the basketball, as she is averaging 12.8 points per game. The freshman forward will have to do so today, as Georgia is sure to throw the kitchen sink her way. Jackson has become the focal point of the Bulldogs offense, having proven to be more than reliable in big moments. Look for Vic Schaefer to call her number throughout today’s game.

Jessika Carter and Chloe Bibby on the boards

Though inconsistent at times, Carter and Bibby are emerging into a formidable one two punch down low. As the Bulldogs have been vulnerable on the boards, Carter and Bibby will have to rule the paint. While Georgia forward Jenna Staiti stands at 6-foot-4, expect Carter at 6-foot-5 and Bibby at 6-foot-1 to neutralize her. If able, the Bulldogs should have their way.

Prediction

Mississippi State runs over Georgia, 93-60
