Mississippi State women's basketball

Those who just recently began following Mississippi State women’s basketball might not remember a time where the LSU Tigers owned the Bulldogs year after year.

LSU won 47 of the first 53 games of the series and it wasn’t until 2016 that head coach Vic Schaefer got his first win over the Tigers and bucked that trend. Since that 2016 triumph in Baton Rouge, MSU has won six-straight in the series and won as many games since 2017 as it did the previous 40 years.

While the LSU teams of old aren’t walking through the doors of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, this is still a solid Tiger team coached by veteran coach Nikki Fargas. LSU stands 13-3 and 3-1 in Southeastern Conference play and just a week ago they beat No. 10 Texas A&M on the road.
