Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer knew if the women's basketball team was going to have success in 2013-14, then there was going to have to be a change.
After his first season where the Bulldogs finished with an overall record of 13-17, Schaefer knew something was going to have to be different and he addressed that with his team immediately following the season.
MSU's players embraced that challenge from their coach and worked on getting better.
The result was a much improved record of 22-14 and the Bulldogs reached the quarterfinals of the Women's National Invitational Tournament.
"We had a great group of returners coming back, then we had the new girls coming in that really adapted well to the system here and were ready to commit," MSU senior Candace Foster said. "Everybody was all in. That was the biggest thing.
"It's the best season I've had since I've been here. I'm just grateful for the opportunity."
