No. 7 Bulldogs go
to 6-0 in league
From Staff and Wire Reports

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — For one game, at


least, the Mississippi State women’s basketball
team showed it could win without a major con-
tribution from senior center and leading scorer
Teaira McCowan.
Senior forward Anriel Howard scored 21
points and led four scor-
ers in double figures to lift No. 7 MSU 90,
No. 7 Mississippi State to a Florida 42
90-42 victory against Flor-
ida on Thursday night.
The Bulldogs tied last year’s game against the
Gators for the second-largest margin of victory
in a Southeastern Conference game in school
history.
Sophomore guard Bre’Amber Scott added 15
points off the bench for the Bulldogs (18-1, 6-0
SEC), who won their eighth-straight game. Se-
nior guard Jordan Danberry had 12 points and
four assists, and freshman guard Xaria Wiggins
added 11 points.
