Broadcast Information

What to Watch For

Rickea Jackson in the paint

Fresh off a career high 34 point performance against Auburn, Jackson is now averaging 15 a game. Further, Jackson has asserted herself as a weapon in the paint. At 6-foot-2, Jackson is a capable rebounder on both ends of the floor. Don’t be surprised if Jackson posts a Double double against the Tide.

Xaria Wiggins off the bench

Though she may not fill the stat line, Wiggins has proven to come up big when it matters most. As she is a formidable weapon on both ends of the floor, Wiggins is emerging into a sniper from distance. Look for her to lead the Bulldogs second unit in points and be a factor off the bench throughout today’s game.

Prediction

Mississippi State rolls past Alabama 88-63
