Kentucky escapes with 71-67 win over Mississippi State

Tennessee Women's Basketball sophomore Rennia Davis scores a season high 29 points in loss at #6 Mississippi State

It was two years ago and mostly different personnel on both sides. Kentucky won convincingly over Mississippi State back on January 22, scoring a 76-55 win at Rupp Arena.

Tipoff is set for 1 p.m. ET from Humphrey Coliseum. So far this season, the Bulldogs have lost just twice at home this season, to rival MS, but being able to split this two-game homestand with LSU and Kentucky will be vital to the Bulldogs' at-large hopes.

Said Tennessee coach Holly Warlick, "Mississippi State is a great basketball team". Their improvement was evident until the wheels fell off in the fourth quarter.

Tennessee is 4-2 on the road this season, including 2-2 in SEC play.

Tennessee (15-7, 4-5 SEC) plays its second game in a row on the road, as it travels to Starkville, Mississippi, to take on No. 6/6 Mississippi State (21-1, 9-0 SEC) on Sunday. "They were special", Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer said.

"I think he's the best player in the country, but not like he played today", Calipari said. "You can't make a lot of mistakes against them, as you see".

Even as tough a taskmaster as Schaefer said, "It was a pretty good day. We better be ready to play from the jump".

Apple AirPods 2 will look the same
We are also expecting some type of health sensor and features while battery life is thought to be nearly exactly the same. That all sounds great, but there is one downside, and as this is Apple you can probably guess what that is.

"But you're here because you want me to keep it real". They've also won 32 straight at home with the last loss coming to Tennessee in 2017, which is their only loss against the Lady Volunteers in the last six tries. But Sunday, the Lady Vols didn't have their leading scorer, guard Evina Westbrook, who had to sit out the game after missing a class.

Tennessee received 29 points from Rennia Davis and 13 points from Zaay Green. The 28-point victory was the Lady Vols largest defeat ever in conference play and was tied for their second-largest margin of defeat overall.

That's how deadly Mississippi State can be; this went from a close game to a historic blowout in the final 12½ minutes. They didn't do that until 2016, ending an 0-36 streak of misery in a series that for almost 30 years was as sure a thing as there was in the SEC.

Much has changed in the SEC women's basketball power structure in recent years, and Mississippi State has been a big part of that. Their next game against Alabama seems winnable on paper, but the Crimson Tide have already beaten the Bulldogs once this season, meaning a loss here could be the start of a losing skid at the absolute worst time.

Center Teaira McCowan led the way with 24 points, 15 rebounds and three blocked shots, and forward Anriel Howard also had a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. This year, Danberry is averaging 13.3 points and 26.5 minutes. MSU answered with an 8-3 run to stretch the lead to eight with 2:57 to play in the period.

Center Kasiyahna Kushkituah scored in double figures in four of her first five games this season before a knee injury forced her to miss three games and limited her mobility in the next 11 outings.

In the OT loss to the Tigers, Mississippi State's Quinndary Weatherspoon led the team with 27 points, two rebounds and two assists. The Bulldogs earned their 25th-straight SEC regular-season victory in the game.
