The 2016 NCAA Women’s Tournament is coming to Starkville, Mississippi and the Lady Bulldogs are on center stage!
The best program on the Mississippi State campus right now is women’s hoops. That’s right – some may argue but it’s hard to argue with the success and bright future the Lady Bulldogs have. They are a young team that is now hosting NCAA games at the Hump – a first in program history.
Up first is a match-up against 12 seed Chattanooga at 1:30. That may be a bit early but it’s not quite 11:00 – and there will be a game at the Hump at 11:00. 4 seed Michigan State, who was unable to host this pod of games due to a scheduling conflict, will clash against Belmont in the early game. So the Bulldogs will know their potential opponent when they take the floor against Chattanooga.
If you can’t make it to the Hump, be sure to watch on ESPN2. If you’re at work you could also listen on MSU radio.
The city of Starkville announced that March 18-20 will be a weekend dedicated to our beloved ladies of the hard court.
Chattanooga doesn’t have any players that jump out at you on the stat sheet. Their two leading scorers – Jasmine Joyner and Keiana Gilbert both average 12 points per game.
Vic Schaefer says it’s a proud day to be a Bulldog.

Indeed. The Bulldogs, of course, are led by Victoria Vivians and a host of solid players who are looking to make a mark this weekend for a chance to play mighty UConn in the Sweet 16.
