STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Preseason All-SEC player Rickea Jackson was one of four Mississippi State players to score in double figures as the No. 6 Bulldogs opened up the Nikki McCray-Penson era with an 88-58 victory over Jackson State.

The Bulldogs played the Tigers in a game that was scheduled late in the week unexpectedly.

They were slated to play in the Women’s Hall of Fame Challenge in Connecticut before participant UConn shut down team activities for two weeks due to COVID-19 concerns.
