MSU to utilize shuttle service for women's game

Staff Writer

Mississippi State fans attending Sunday’s women’s basketball showdown with Tennessee at Humphrey Coliseum will have expanded shuttle service from parking lots on campus.  
Certain lots will be open and shuttle service from each will begin at 2 p.m. and conclude one hour after the women’s basketball game ends. Those lots are Zach Village, Bost, Hunter Henry, Barnes & Nobles, Newell Grissom area, Dorman Hall, Lot 17 (across the street from Fresh Foods), Large parking lots behind Roberts Building (Swamp Lot), and Garner Hall Lot.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early on Sunday for the women's basketball game as Mississippi State will honor seniors Ketara Chapel, Dominique Dillingham, Breanna Richardson and Chinwe Okorie. The quartet has become fan favorites, becoming the winningest class in program history after compiling 104 victories and setting numerous records during their four years in Starkville.
Because of the contributions the four have made in helping kick-start coach Vic Schaefer’s blueprint for building a championship program, the fifth-year head coach hopes Bulldog fans will reward them by setting the Humphrey Coliseum attendance record on Sunday.
“For me, the biggest thing is my seniors," Schaefer said. "They have dedicated themselves to our program for four years. They have done so much for our community and our University, so I think a great way to show our appreciation to them would be to have the largest crowd in the history of Humphrey Coliseum. That’s my goal, and I think it’s the least we can do. It’s my hope that Bulldog fans across this great state would come support our team in a very meaningful game and show their love and appreciation for four tremendous seniors.”
Tipoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. and doors to Humphrey Coliseum open at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are available at General admission tickets are $5 and kids 18 and under get in free. 
Fans are reminded of the remainder of Sunday’s on-campus schedule. The baseball team faces Marist at 1 p.m. at Dudy Noble Field. The 20th-ranked MSU men’s tennis team hosts North Carolina State at 11 a.m. Softball closes out the February Freezer at 11 a.m. (consolation game) and 1:30 p.m. (championship game) at Nusz Park.
