STARKVILLE, Miss. – Defending the home court is essential in making a run at the postseason. The Mississippi State women’s basketball team will attempt to finish the home portion of its non-conference schedule undefeated Monday night when it hosts Louisiana-Lafayette in a 7 p.m. tip at Humphrey Coliseum.
Monday’s game will be broadcast on WKBB-FM 100.9 and WXWX-FM 96.3. The contest will also be broadcast via live video and audio to Maroon to the Max subscribers.

Head coach Sharon Fanning-Otis’ squad improved to 7-0 at home and 7-2 overall Friday night with a 71-57 win against in-state foe Southern Mississippi.
Senior Porsha Porter sparked the Lady Bulldogs as she poured in a season-high 25 points. The Chicago native has had the hot hand lately, averaging 20.7 points over her last three games to raise her season total to 14.8 ppg.
Porter is the team’s second-leading scorer behind fellow senior Diamber Johnson, who is averaging 18.3 ppg after an 11-point showing against the Golden Eagles. Johnson, who tops the SEC in scoring, enters Monday’s game five points away from No. 800 for her career.
