STARKVILLE, Miss. – Fans can meet the 2017-18 Mississippi State women’s basketball team Friday at Maroon Madness, then see the reigning NCAA National Finalist in action for the first time on Wed., Oct. 25 as the Bulldogs host their annual Maroon-White Scrimmage at Humphrey Coliseum.
 
Tip for the event is set for 6 p.m., and admission is free.
 
The Bulldogs return nine players from last year’s team that set school records with 34 overall wins and 13 SEC victories. State capped the historic season with a run to the national championship game in the program’s first Final Four appearance.
 
That historic run included a 66-64 overtime victory against UConn in the national semifinal, a win that snapped the Huskies’ record 111-game win streak and earned the Bulldogs the ESPY for Best Upset.
 
Vic Schaefer‘s sixth Mississippi State edition returns the top three scorers – seniors Victoria Vivians and Morgan William and junior Teaira McCowan – from that squad in addition to fellow seniors Blair Schaefer and Roshunda Johnson.
 
Along with the veteran talent returning, Mississippi State welcomes five newcomers to the roster: Mississippi all-state standouts Myah Taylor and Nyah Tate, Arkansas all-state guard Bre’Amber Scott, junior college all-state talent Jonika Garvin and Australian forward Chloe Bibby.
