STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Teaira McCowan notched her 43rd career double-double with 24 points and 10 rebounds, and sixth-ranked Mississippi State rolled past Furman 106-41 on Wednesday.

The Bulldogs (5-0) used a 30-0 run over 12 minutes of the first and second quarters to run away from the Paladins. Mississippi State led 60-18 at halftime.

The Bulldogs closed the third quarter on a 16-0 run and had 18 points in the period from McCowan for an 88-26 advantage.

Le'Jzae Davidson scored 17 points on 5-of-17 shooting from 3-point range to lead Furman (2-3).

Five Bulldogs scored in double figures. Chloe Bibby had a career-high 21 points on 5-of-6 shooting from long range. Andra Espinoza-Hunter had 14 points, Anriel Howard scored 12 and Myah Taylor had 10.

Mississippi State went 12 of 20 from 3-point range and shot 63 percent from the field. The Bulldogs out-rebounded the Paladins 45-24, forced 26 turnovers and dished out 28 assists.

BIG PICTURE
