Mississippi State Bulldogs Women's Basketball TicketsSince 1999, the Lady Bulldogs of Mississippi State have been one of the most consistent women's basketball teams in the Southeastern Conference. One of the program's biggest claims to fame, and possibly the biggest upset in women's basketball, was ending the 111-game winning streak established by the UConn Lady Huskies in 2017. The victory came on a last-second shot in overtime by Morgan Williams in the semifinals of the NCAA tournament. The Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs have been strong in recent years, and fans watched as the team appeared in back to back championships in 2017 and 2018. The 2019 team lost in the Elite Eight round of the tournament. The Lady Bulldogs are back at it again for another season of basketball and are intent on bringing a championship to Starkville, Miss.

What players will I see play for the Mississippi State Bulldogs for 2019-2020?Sophomore guard Xaria Wiggins is playing a high level of basketball for the Lady Bulldogs. Wiggins is an expert scorer who can use her tall frame to match up with players anywhere on the perimeter. Wiggins is shooting nearly 40% from the field. Chloe Bibbins, an Australian-born forward who missed most of her senior year due to injury, has been hot at the start of her junior year. Bibbins is shooting 38.5% from behind the three-point arc and is contributing nearly seven rebounds a game for the Lady Bulldogs. Myah Taylor is the redshirt sophomore guard who has been given the responsibility of replacing last year's Honorable Mention All-American point guard Jazzmun Holmes. Taylor has been solid in her new role and averaged just over four assists a game in her first 17 games as a starter.
Who is the coach of the Mississippi State Lady Bulldogs?Vic Schaefer took over as the head coach of the Lady Bulldogs in March of 2012. The seven years Schaefer has spent in Starkville has been the most productive time the Lady Bulldog basketball program has experienced. The team won its first regular-season and tournament SEC Championships and has been invited to the NCAA tournament for the past five years. The Lady Bulldogs made it to the final game of the NCAA Tournament in both 2017 and 2018.
Who are some notable Lady Bulldog basketball players of the past decade?Teaira McCowan was a vital piece to the puzzle that facilitated the Lady Bulldog rise from a good team to one that contended for championships in back to back years in 2017 and 2018. Hard work allowed McCowan to elevate her game from a non-starter as a freshman to finishing first in Lady Bulldog history in rebounding and field goal percentage. McGowan is also the only Lady Bulldogs to tally 1,500 points and rebounds while blocking more than 250 opponent shots. Victoria Vivians was a second-team all-SEC player in her freshman year. She earned first-team all-SEC status with the team in each of her last three seasons. Vivians averaged nearly 20 points to go along with six rebounds during her final season as a Lady Bulldog. Her efforts made her the eighth pick in the WNBA draft.
