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.

Teaira McCown led the Bulldogs with 19 points, followed by Jordan Danberry (16 points), Bre’Amber Scott (14 points), Andra Espinoza-Hunter (13 points) and Anriel Howard (11 points).

The Bulldogs (6-0) have scored 77 or more points in all six games this season. On defense, all six opponents have been held to 53 points or less.

“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.”

The Bulldogs enjoyed a 60-point half for the fourth time this season, with a 61-22 lead at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Bulldogs scored 29 points to build a 90-32 lead heading into the final 10 minutes.
