STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Martha Alwal had 14 points and 13 rebounds, Breanna Richardson scored 16 points, and No. 13 Mississippi State overcame a slow start Sunday to beat Florida 75-62.

The Bulldogs (24-4, 9-4 SEC) rallied for a 40-30 halftime advantage and opened the second with a 9-4 run for a 15-point lead that never dropped back into single digits. Their 24th win ties the program's best starts in 1999-00 and 2002-03.

Florida (12-13, 4-8) scored the first eight points to open the game and led 17-9 before Mississippi State ripped off a 21-5 run to take the lead for good.

Alwal recorded her third double-double of the season and 34th of her career. Victoria Vivians added 10 points as the Bulldogs bounced back from a 92-90 double overtime loss at No. 10 Kentucky on Thursday.

January Miller had 16 points to lead Florida. Ronni Williams and Brooke Copeland added 11 each.
