Jerica James was making basketball plays all over the court when the Mississippi State Bulldogs needed them the most against Southern Mississippi Monday night.

In the second overtime, James hit a big 3-point field goal to increase a two-point lead by MSU to 70-65.
The Bulldogs ended up taking a 73-66 victory over the Golden Eagles in a highly-competitive second round game of the Women's National Basketball Tournament at Humphrey Coliseum.
"God is good," a relieved James said after the game.
