Kentucky (20-3, 9-1 Southeastern Conference) has won 10 straight games since losing to Alabama in its conference opener on January 5.

MSU's "Pink Out" to raise awareness about breast cancer is sold out.

MSU (21-1, 9-0 SEC) is coming off a 65-49 victory against Alabama on Sunday at Coleman Coliseum In Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Bulldogs earned their 25th-straight SEC regular-season victory in the game. Their run is now the fourth-longest streak in the nation.

"Our team was special today", Schaefer said.

"When you have a strong inside game and guards that are super quick, it's a big challenge", Warlick said. In a statement, Westbrook said she missed a class. Bre'Amber Scott capped a 6-0 run with a basket for a 38-28 lead.

Losing four of the games by a combined nine points, UT dropped five consecutive league tilts before bouncing back with wins over LSU, Florida and Vanderbilt.

Despite a week of rest to prepare, the Tennessee Lady Vols' three-game winning streak came to an end in embarrassing fashion Sunday.

Evina Westbrook is the Tennessee Lady Vols' best player, and she was suspended for a violation of team rules. He hopes his team will be ready to play so they avoid an embarrassment like the one they suffered on Senior Day.

Tennessee hosts Auburn on Thursday.

But then here we are, mid-afternoon on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, and Vic Schaefer's Bulldogs just polished off the proud Lady Vols 91-63 before 10,021 at The Hump.

She appeared so fast, I had to ask her if she ever ran track. They are the only team to play in every tournament since it began in 1982.

Mississippi State's Anriel Howard had 16 points and 11 rebounds. "We're going to have to be spot-on with everything we do".

The way the Bulldogs looked Sunday, especially with their 30-point fourth quarter, it's clear they can play with anyone. McCowan had her 18th double-double (57th of her career) against Alabama despite attempting only four field goals. Senior Jordan Danberry, who transferred to Mississippi State from Arkansas, averaged just 2.8 points and 9.6 minutes last season for the Bulldogs while playing behind then-seniors Victoria Vivians, Roshunda Johnson, Blair Schaefer and Morgan William.

"I don't see any reason they can't compete for a [national] championship", Tennessee coach Holly Warlick said.

Schaefer said MSU spent all of its practice Friday working on offense.

This is the second matchup of the season between these two teams. MSU enters the game against Tennessee second in the nation in scoring (88.2 ppg.) and first in scoring margin (33.8 ppg.).

It was more like they couldn't breathe, much less get a rebound or an open shot.

Even as tough a taskmaster as Schaefer said, "It was a pretty good day. We have to focus on each step".

"Rennia is a great player", Danberry said. Washington has been filling the stat sheet in recent weeks, averaging 20 points and 10.5 rebounds in his last four outings. A win over a top-5 surging United Kingdom team could knock them back on a collision course for the upper tier of the SEC - and give a boost to their NCAA Tournament resume.
