Breanna Richardson played one of her better games of the season on Thursday night for the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
With 17 points in an 81-74 overtime loss to the Kentucky Wildcats, it was only one point off the career-high of 18 that Richardson had at Ole Miss.
Richardson chose not to focus on the points she scored, but the ones she didn't get against the Wildcats.
"If I make free throws, we win the game," Richardson said after the game. "I was 3-for-9 and usually I don't miss any free throws."
Three days after suffering the defeat, Richardson goes home as the Bulldogs end the regular season with a game at Georgia.
Richardson, a native of Conyers, Ga., still has confidence in MSU to win games despite coming up just short several times.
"It shows that we are really good," Richardson said. "Sometimes we underestimate ourselves, then we come out and play against teams like (Kentucky). It shows that we can compete and have a chance to win."
