The No. 2 Mississippi State women's basketball team treated another full crowd to a victory Sunday afternoon in the Humphrey Coliseum.

Playing before 9,520 fans, the Bulldogs knocked off Kentucky 74-55 to maintain its undefeated status while taking another step towards a possible conference championship.

MSU improved to 26-0 overall, 12-0 in league play and 14-0 at Humphrey Coliseum this season. Kentucky fell to 12-14 and 4-8. The Bulldogs snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Wildcats.

"The first quarter was really special," MSU head coach Vic Schaefer said. "Roshunda Johnson was special there in the first half. She made some really big shots. It changes us when both Ro and Blair (Schaefer) are out there making shots."
