Mississippi State head women’s coach Vic Schaefer said during his post-game comments that his team has to create offense with its defense.
No one does that better for the Bulldogs than Dominique Dillingham.
Dillingham made 8-of-12 shots from the field and led the way with 17 points as No. 16 MSU defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide 61-52 on Sunday afternoon.
It was just another day on the job for Dillingham and the Bulldogs.
“It just started with defense,” Dillingham said. “All I was worried about was playing defense and getting stops. I knew offensively it would come. They were guarding Tori (Victoria Vivians) hard and that left me open. I was just focusing on making shots.”
