South Carolina appeared to have the game in hand with a 52-40 lead midway through the second half, but Mississippi State pulled within 55-54 with 6:25 remaining.

The game stayed tight until the final minute when Tina Roy hit a 3-pointer with 50 seconds left to put the Gamecocks ahead 66-59.

Mississippi State (16-8, 3-7) lost for just the third time at home this season. Jerica James led the Bulldogs with 11 points. Martha Alwal and Savannah Carter both added 10.
