Earlier this season the Lady Bulldogs squeaked by Mississippi, 69-60, to extend the overall record to 10-53. Rebel Amber Watts went 10-for-10 from the line adding to her 20 points for Mississippi. For the Bulldogs, Thomas, White and sophomore Rebecca Kates scored in double digits to lift MSU to a win.
The Rebels are enduring a five-game losing streak. Their most recent loss came to LSU on Thursday, 83-67. Watts leads the Rebels averaging 12.4 ppg and 8.6 rpg. She is second in the SEC in rebounds. UM's lone SEC win of the season came against Florida, 74-72.
Sunday afternoon the Lady Bulldogs are looking for win No. 20. MSU has only accomplished a 20+ win season one other time in history during the 1999-2000 campaign where the Lady Bulldogs finished 24-8. MSU is also looking to sweep the series for only the third time in history (others during 1999-2000 and 2001-02 seasons).
