Player to Watch
Next to Kentucky’s Rhyne Howard, Jackson is arguably the most dominant scorer in the Southeastern Conference. At 6-foot-2, Jackson is a mismatch nightmare who can create her own shot. She is a sniper from midrange and has become a formidable paint presence.
Jackson posted 13 points against Jackson State in 2019. Expect her to pour in north of 20 this afternoon. While she is near perfect from midrange, look for Jackson to shoot from distance. For her game to become complete, Jackson will have to have range and there is every reason to believe she has learned a thing or two from coach Nikki McCray-Penson in the offseason.
Jackson grew as a defender throughout last year’s SEC tournament and should have her way today. She has proven to force the issue and capitalize on turnovers. Whether it be through a crucial steal or momentum shifting block, expect Jackson play with high energy on the defensive end of the floor.
In a new and promising season for the Bulldogs, Jackson will be at the team’s forefront. Do not be surprised at Jackson putting on a scoring clinic and having a day on defense.
Mississippi State runs past Jackson State 87 - 60
