Broadcast Information

The game is at 6 p.m. CT and can be watched on the SEC Network.

What to Watch For

Chloe Bibby on the boards

Though she has been quiet offensively, Bibby has been a factor on the boards defensively. As Jessika Carter will have her work cut out for her down low, Bibby’s presence on the defensive end should determine the outcome of tonight’s game. While the junior forward is averaging six boards per game, Bibby will need at least ten for the Bulldogs earn their twentieth victory.

Aliyah Matharu in the third quarter

Matharu has been a consistent spark plug off the bench, as although streaky at times, can score in bunches. Having poured in ten straight points against South Carolina, Matharu is more than capable of taking things into her own hands and/or igniting the offense. Look for her to do so in the lane and from distance.

Prediction

Mississippi State runs past Georgia 90-74
