Carter, who was 12 of 17 from the field and made 6 of 10 shots beyond the arc, had the most points by a Mississippi State player since Darryl Wilson scored 35 in 1995.

The Bulldogs (6-0) shot 52 percent (31 of 60) from the field, including 10 of 23 from 3-point range.

Carter scored 16 points in the first half for Mississippi State, which built a 29-14 lead before the Bison closed the half on a 10-0 run and trailed just 29-24 at the break.

In that first half, North Dakota State shot just 33.3 percent and the Bulldogs were not much better at 38.7 percent.

BIG PICTURE

Mississippi State: The Bulldogs are off to their best start since winning 13 in a row to open the 2003-04 season.

North Dakota State: Last week the Bison averaged 87 points in wins over Florida A&M and Stetson. But the past two games — both losses — have not been a pretty picture on the offensive end. On Tuesday North Dakota State scored just 50 points in a loss at Stephen F. Austin and followed that with a 59-point showing against Mississippi State on Thursday.

UP NEXT

Mississippi State continues its eight-game home stand to open the season and will host Dayton on Sunday.

North Dakota State returns home on Monday and will host Missouri State.
