The Mississippi State Bulldogs showed the type of fight and determination during the Women's National Invitational Tournament that made head coach Vic Schaefer proud.
Despite the last charge by the South Florida Bulls that resulted in them winning a 60-58 decision at Humphrey Coliseum in the fourth round of the WNIT, MSU had no reason to hang its heads.
The disappointment was there because of the way the Bulldogs lost, but once again they found a way to get back into a game and even take a lead after trailing in the second half.
"I don't know when I've ever been prouder," Schaefer said. "I hate it that we lost (Sunday) and I hate it for them than anything. To know how hard they play and how hard they practice, I'm just proud to be a Bulldog."
Martha Alwal scored inside to give MSU a 58-57 lead with 4.2 seconds remaining in the game, then South Florida called a timeout for the final play.
