STARKVILLE, MS (WMC) -

The Mississippi State Women’s Basketball team’s impressive season is still going strong.

With a win over fourth-seeded Michigan State, the Bulldogs are advancing to the Sweet 16.

The team now sits at 28-7 on the season and will play the winner of UConn-Duquesne in the next round. The 28 wins are the most in school history.

The UConn Huskies are undefeated on the season and the game will be held in Bridgeport, Connecticut, so a Duquesne upset could greatly benefit the Bulldogs’ chances.

The Bulldogs entered the tournament as a five seed. The next round contest will take place Friday, March 25.
