Mississippi State women’s hoops blows 15-point lead, falls to Kentucky 81-74
Mississippi State women’s basketball began its stretch of three games in six days Tuesday night in Lexington against Kentucky. MSU had plenty of momentum following Sunday’s emotional 70-59 victory over Ole Miss. Doug Novak’s crew had a 15-point lead with 7:10 to go, but the Wildcats went on a 24-2 run to close it out and clinch the win.
The shorthanded Dawgs were led by Anastasia Hayes (21 points) and JerKaila Jordan (20 points), but fell to 15-9 on the year and 6-6 in SEC play. They return to action Thursday night at 6 when they host LSU.
