STARKVILLE, Miss. – Three days removed from a stellar season-opening win against Jacksonville State, the Mississippi State women’s basketball team continues a three-game homestand as it hosts Xavier Monday night at 7 p.m. at Humphrey Coliseum.
Radio for Monday’s game can be heard 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.
Fans can follow Mississippi State women’s hoops during the season on Twitter (www.twitter.com/mstateWBK) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/mstateWBK).
Sharon Fanning-Otis’ Lady Bulldogs welcome the Musketeers after rolling to a 78-41 win, State’s 300th home victory, against Jacksonville State in Friday night’s season opener.
Mississippi State was paced in scoring by senior Diamber Johnson, who poured in a career-high 30 points. Going back to last season, the Pontotoc native has had a hot hand, scoring at an 18.5 clip over her last nine games.
Fellow senior Porsha Porter was the other Lady Bulldog in double-figures, chipping in 10 points while tallying seven of MSU’s 24 steals in the contest.
In addition to the steals, MSU’s defensive presence was shown in the paint where the team blocked a school-record 14 shots. Freshman Martha Alwal swatted 10 of those, giving her the top mark in MSU annals in her collegiate debut.
The Worthington, Minn., native tallied a double-double Friday, pulling down 11 rebounds to go with her school-record 10 blocks.
Mississippi State will need another strong defensive effort as it meets Xavier for the fourth time since 2009. MSU will be looking to bounce back from a 61-36 setback last season in Cincinnati.
The 2011-12 Musketeers opened the season with a 66-61 win against Eastern Kentucky on Saturday. Four Xavier players hit double figures, led by Tyeasha Moss who collected a double-double with 22 points and 12 rebounds.
Lynette Holmes and Jessica Pachko tallied 11 points each, while Amber Gray chipped in 10 for first-year head coach Amy Waugh.
