Mississippi State women’s basketball releases 2021-22 SEC schedule


STARKVILLE — Mississippi State women’s basketball will open its 2021-22 conference schedule at home against Florida for the second time in three seasons, the start of a 16-game slate that features home-and-home matchups with Ole Miss, Arkansas and Missouri.

The SEC announced the conference schedule Wednesday, and the Bulldogs will look to improve in year two under coach Nikki McCray-Penson. In McCray-Penson’s first season in Starkville, Mississippi State went 10-9 overall and 5-7 in the conference, missing out on the NCAA tournament.

The Bulldogs enter the 2021-22 season with nine newcomers between incoming freshmen and transfers.

Several of those transfers should prove to be immediate contributors for Mississippi State, such as guard Anastasia Hayes, who was named the 2021 Conference USA Player of the Year at Middle Tennessee State for averaging 26.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.
