The Mississippi State women's basketball starting lineup continues to take shape in Vic Schaefer's second season as the head coach.
Veterans like junior All-Southeastern Conference center Martha Alwal and senior point guard Katia May are providing the leadership needed to start games, but newcomers like freshman forward Breanna Richardson, freshman guard Dominique Dillingham and junior college transfer guard Savannah Carter have also emerged.
Schaefer said the development of the returning players and the progress of the recruiting class coming in have been key in turning around a 13-17 record of last year into a 21-13 season that's still going in the Women's National Invitational Tournament. The Bulldogs take on the Auburn Tigers in the third round of the event tonight at Humphrey Coliseum.
"It shows that our coaching staff did a good job of evaluating these young ladies that came in and injected what we needed, but you have to give our returners some credit for what they did starting about this time last year," Schaefer said. "We lost on about the 5th of March last year, took two weeks off, then went back to work. The work they put in individually really has paid off and there's no question that each and every one of them is better in a certain way."
