Jackson, No. 8 Mississippi State overcome Georgia 67-53

By The Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Freshman Rickea Jackson had a career-high 24 points, and No. 8 Mississippi State ran past Georgia 67-53 on Monday night.

Jackson followed a 22-point effort against Auburn by posting her second consecutive career high. She began 3 for 11 from the field but hit her final five shots. Jessika Carter added 15 points and 11 rebounds in 30 minutes for her eighth double-double this season.

The Bulldogs (20-3, 8-1 Southeastern Conference) shot just 4 of 19 shooting in the first quarter and trailed 15-11 before taking control by outscoring Georgia 23-10 in the second quarter and 22-13 in the third.

The Bulldogs committed just nine turnovers and forced 25 by Georgia, scoring 24 points off those mistakes.

Que Morrison had 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists for Georgia (12-10, 3-6), which lost leading scorer Gabby Connally in the first half with a cut on her eye after a collision with Mississippi State’s Jordan Danberry. Connally received stitches at a hospital.

Maya Caldwell added 12 points for Georgia.

BIG PICTURE

Mississippi State: The Bulldogs have things to work on as the schedule gets tougher with upcoming games against Tennessee and Texas A&M and a visit to Kentucky over the next three games.

Georgia: The Bulldogs have given Mississippi State fits but couldn’t protect the ball and struggled to score. They have lost three consecutive games, all against top-15 teams.

UP NEXT

Mississippi State visits No. 22 Tennessee on Thursday.

Georgia hosts Missouri on Thursday.
