Press Release from Mississippi State Athletics

A 22-0 start, the best in school history, has kept the Mississippi State women’s basketball team at No. 2 in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

The Bulldogs earned the ranking a week ago after knocking off Tennessee in Knoxville, and they maintained it with a 90-53 home win against Florida and a 69-49 road victory at Ole Miss.

In addition to claiming a school record at 22-0, Vic Schaefer’s squad also jumped out to its best SEC start ever at 8-0.

Fans can discuss the record-setting start with the Bulldogs’ head coach on Tuesday during another edition of DawgTalk with Vic Schaefer. The show will air live from 7-8 p.m. at The Veranda. Fans unable to attend are encouraged to tweet questions to MSU’s official Twitter account, @HailStateWBK.

The Bulldogs, who join UConn as the nation’s only undefeated teams, earned their 68th-straight week in the poll and 32nd-consecutive week in the Top 10.

State’s run in the Top 25 is the sixth-longest active streak in the country, while its tenure in the Top 10 is the fifth-longest current run. The Bulldogs have been in the Top 5 for eight-straight weeks, the nation’s fourth-best active streak.

The Bulldogs face a tough stretch as they travel to No. 15 Missouri for a 7:30 p.m. tip on the SEC Network before returning home Monday to meet No. 7 South Carolina at 6 p.m. on ESPN2 in a rematch of last year’s national championship game.
