STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Morgan William scored 17 points and Victoria Vivians 13, and the two guards made big plays late in No. 11 Mississippi State's 52-42 victory over No. 21 Missouri on Sunday.
Mississippi State (21-4, 8-3 SEC) led 45-42 when William scored and Vivians followed with a steal and 3-point play for an eight-point lead with a minute left. William added two free throws with the duo combining for the Bulldogs' final 11 points.
Sophie Cunningham scored 13 points and Jordan Frericks had 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers (18-6, 5-6).
Both teams shot under 33 percent, combining to make only 3 of 22 3-pointers. But the Bulldogs made eight steals and turned 27 Missouri turnovers into 29 points in picking up their fourth straight win and splitting the season series.
Mississippi State led from midway through the first quarter but Missouri stayed within single digits most of the way.
