Now 2-1 in conference play, the Bulldogs rolled in Gainesville, proving that they are still one of the best squads in the Southeastern Conference.

Jessika Carter led the way with a double-double, her fifth of the year that included a team-high 25 points and 15 boards. She added two blocks and two steals. Rickea Jackson put up 16 points.

Though star Gator guard Lavender Briggs posted a team-high 25 pointes points of her own, the Bulldogs held Kiara Smith to just 10 points. While it may not have been an offensive clinic, Mississippi State showed their dominance defensively. Look for the Bulldogs to be more phyiscal and protect early leads going forward.

Hail State!
