myah taylor jackson state 19

Mississippi State sophomore point guard Myah Taylor has already taken 18 charges in only nine games this season. 

No. 10 Mississippi State returns to Humphrey Coliseum today for the first time since Nov. 18 as the Bulldogs host West Virginia at 1 p.m. on the SEC Network as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge.

MSU has only met the Mountaineers once, which came early in Vic Schaefer’s third season. The Bulldogs upset then No. 17 West Virginia 74-61 in the semifinals of the 2014 Preseason WNIT Tournament in Starkville. State went on to win the event and have been ranked in the Top 25 ever since.

The Bulldogs (8-1) are looking to bounce back after their first loss to now No. 1 Stanford in the finals of the Greater Victoria Invitational. Sophomore forward/ center Jessika Carter continues to average a double-double of 15.1 points and 11.3 rebounds for Mississippi State.

West Virginia (5-1) is coming off a 1-1 showing in the Cancun Challenge last week. The Mountaineers feature former MSU signee Esmery Martinez, who is averaging nine points and 8.2 rebounds as a freshman forward.
