Mississippi State women's basketball

Madison Hayes (21) will be transferring from the Mississippi State women's basketball program.

Hayes was one of the bright spots for the Bulldogs in 2020-21 in a season of turmoil. Under first-year head coach Nikki McCray-Penson, the Bulldogs went from SEC Championship contender the year before to a first-round exit in the SEC Tournament and missing out entirely on the postseason for the first time since 2013. Hayes was the only player on the team to make a postseason honor by the SEC as the Chattanooga, Tenn., native was chosen to the All-Freshman team by the conference.
