Player to Watch

Rickea Jackason

As it has been an up and down season for Jackson, she will need to be at her best for the Bulldogs to leave Tuscaloosa with a win. While Jackson is a lethal scorer, she has also improved as a defender. Likely to be matched up against either Ariyah Copeland or Jasmine Walker, Jackson’s defense should determine the game’s outcome.

Jackson and fellow forward Jessika Carter have proven to be a formidable duo down low. Look for both to score north of 15 points. Alabama is an offensive juggernaut. Mississippi State must make this a defensive battle to come out on top and get back on track. If the Bulldogs are able to hold the Crimson Tide in check, expect Jackson to be the reason why.

Hail State!
