STARKVILLE, Miss. (MSU Athletics/WTVA) - No. 6 Mississippi State topped 100 points for a fourth straight game as the Bulldogs capped a four-game home stand with a 105-38 win against Jackson State in women’s basketball action Saturday afternoon at Humphrey Coliseum.

“We came out offensively and were very good,” MSU head coach Vic Schaefer said. “Our transition game was good. We didn’t make as many threes as we normally do. Bre’Amber Scott did a great job off the bench. I wanted her to be the first one in today. She really delivered.”
