With less than two minutes remaining, another Humphrey Coliseum crowd broke out the “S-E-C, S-E-C” chant.

No. 2 Mississippi State completed its climb to the top of the nation’s best conference in women’s basketball with a win against No. 17/18 Texas A&M before a third-straight sellout crowd of 9,933.

MSU improved to 28-0 overall, 14-0 in conference play and 15-0 at home. The Bulldogs set a new school record conference victories in a season, while claiming outright the program’s first-ever regular-season Southeastern Conference championship in any women’s sport.

The Bulldogs will try to complete the undefeated regular season against Auburn at home Thursday and Kentucky in Lexington, Ky. Sunday.

Texas A&M fell to 20-8 and 9-5.
