Kentucky vs. Mississippi State: Storylines to watch in the SEC matchup

Mississippi State vs. Kentucky - 2/9/19 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

She finished with 12 points, 12 rebounds, and four blocked shots in 31 minutes. As a matter of record, the traditional ANE analysis indicates a 2-point Kentucky advantage (72-70), and a "last 5" analysis indicates a United Kingdom win by 15 points, 78-63.

Then, led by both their guards and posts, the Bulldogs took off and left the Lady Vols in the dust.

Said Tennessee coach Holly Warlick, "Mississippi State is a great basketball team". The Bulldogs have lost four of their last six.

Including this game, MSU has been the higher ranked team in the past six games, entering this one with a 4-1 edge over UT. The Bulldogs had a chance for a quality victory against No. 21 LSU at home on Wednesday but blew a game they were leading throughout and fell 92-88 in overtime.

The Lady Vols were unable to defend their home court last season, falling, 71-52, on January 21.

The Bulldogs outscored Tennessee by 16 in the fourth quarter to blow open a fairly tight game.

UT won on MSU's 2017 senior day, 82-64, with Jaime Nared registering a career-high 30 points to lead the Big Orange siege.

#15/15 MSU took the second meeting in the SEC semifinals that year, taking a 58-48 triumph over the unranked Lady Vols in Jacksonville on March 5, 2016. MSU has scored 80 or more points eight time in conference play.

Third-year UT assistant coach Sharrona Reaves was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at MSU from 2008-10.

Tennessee: The Lady Vols were on a roll coming into Starkville, winning three straight after starting SEC play with a 1-5 record. The Bulldogs are 2-2 in their last four games, with wins over Auburn and MS and losses to Alabama and LSU.

The Tennessee Lady Vols scrapped to within three in the third quarter but couldn't overcome a No. 6 Mississippi State team that shot an impressive 52.2 percent on the day.

"(Jordan Danberry) was as good as she has been in any game she has played here.

Jackson had suffered a performance lull as well after hitting double figures in 10 of her first 13 games, including a 27-point effort at Auburn.

Schaefer said he would have preferred to have flipped the script that has MSU ending the SEC regular with seven consecutive games, including four at home, but he said it is what it is and the Bulldogs will have to go get it.

Kushkituah shed a bulky knee brace during the LSU game and finished the day with 14 points and eight rebounds. But there were plenty of happy faces in the Hump on Sunday, as 10,021 fans celebrated with a team that - despite losing four starters for the second year in a row - is vying to be the nation's best. Rennia Davis led the way with 29 points and going 3-of-6 from the three-point line. Howard added 11 rebounds to claim a double-double on the afternoon. The 10,000-plus were clearly maroon at heart and you should have heard them late in the first quarter when Teaira McCowan, all 6 feet, 7 inches of her, went flying into the scorer's table after a loose ball. "I told them going into the fourth quarter we wanted to punch them hard that first five minutes, and, boy, did we ever punch them". Chelsie Hall and Autumn Newby each had 11 for the Commodores.
