Bulldogs win first SEC Tournament title - Mar 11, 2019

Teaira
McCowan
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- When Mississippi State coach Victor Schaefer climbed the ladder, snipped the net and rang a cowbell, the message was clear -- the Bulldogs were finally on top at the Southeastern Conference Tournament.
Teaira McCowan (6'7''-C-96) had 24 points and 14 rebounds, and No. 5 Mississippi State won its first SEC tournament title in five tries with a 101-70 pounding of Arkansas on Sunday.
Schaefer has cut down his share of nets in his career, having led the Bulldogs to the Final Four the past two seasons. This one, he acknowledged, was different.
"This is certainly special," he said with a smile, the net around his neck. "This is a first."
The Bulldogs (30-2) and McCowan scored the most points ever in an SEC Tournament title game -- and ended their own 0-4 mark when reaching the event finals. They took control with an 18-0 run in the first quarter and never gave the Razorbacks (20-14) hope for a comeback after losing the crown the last three years to South Carolina.
This time, regular-season SEC champ Mississippi State left little doubt about who's the league powerhouse. The Bulldogs were up by 20 at the half and 25 through three quarters on their way to their ninth straight win over the Razorbacks.
Mississippi State surpassed Georgia's 94 points in winning the 1986 event.
When it ended, confetti rained down on the court as Bulldog players and staffers celebrated like children out in the snow. "It's an unbelievable feeling," Mississippi State guard Jazzmun Holmes (5'8''-G) said.
Arkansas was the surprise of the tournament, a 10 seed upsetting seventh-seeded Georgia, the second-seeded Gamecocks and third-seeded Texas A&M to become the highest seed ever to make the finals.
But the Razorbacks didn't have enough to match up with Mississippi State's rebounding, defensive ferocity or McCowan, the 6-foot-7 SEC player of the year who was also named tournament MVP.
McCowan made 11 of 15 shots -- all of them close to the basket -- and had three of the Bulldogs' six blocks.
"We were literally drawing up plays in the dirt trying to find a way to stop her," Arkansas coach Mike Neighbors said. "We didn't have a chance."
She wasn't alone in the rout as Mississippi State finished with three players with 20 or more points.
Andra Espinoza-Hunter (5'11''-G) also scored 24 off eight 3-pointers while Bre'Amber Scott (5'11''-G) had 20 points off the bench.
Chelsea Dungee (5'11''-G-97) led Arkansas with 24 points. The Razorbacks looked finished Saturday night until going on a 17-0 run over the last seven minutes to beat the 15th-ranked Aggies 58-51.
But the Bulldogs had the biggest advantage in the SEC in McCowan and made steady use of it throughout the championship game. McCowan continually set herself up near the basket and waited for Jazzmun Holmes and Jordan Danberry to lob the ball in. From there, it was a simple layup drill for McCowan, who hit 9 of 11 shots in the opening 20 minutes.
McCowan's defensive presence also impacted the Razorbacks and Dungee. Instead of an open lane, Dungee was often met by McCowan and forced to alter her shot angle to get off an attempt.
Mississippi State made its share of mistakes -- pesky Arkansas had seven steals the first two quarters -- but typically got back on track by finding its center in McCowan.
Scott, filling in early after Anriel Howard picked up two fouls, had a perfect first half, making her four shots, three of them from behind the arc, for 13 points.

BIG PICTURE
Arkansas: The Razorbacks' run to the finals was energizing and fun for a tournament that too often sticks to form. But Arkansas' regular-season finish of eight losses in nine games all but dropped it from NCAA contention, and it will have to wait with fingers crossed when the bids come out March 18.
Mississippi State: The Bulldogs made a strong statement about their potential to return to the Final Four for a third straight season. The balance and skill they displayed this week makes them a contender for the national title.

SEEDS OF DISCONTENT
The humble side of Schaefer doesn't worry where the Bulldogs will get placed in the NCAA Tournament bracket on March 18. The prideful, SEC side of Schaefer is unsure what else his team has to accomplish to be a No. 1 seed after winning the league's regular-season and tournament crowns. The Bulldogs are currently projected as a two-seed, with Baylor, UConn, Notre Dame and Louisville the four No. 1s. "I don't know what else you can do," Schaefer said.

DUNGEE'S RECORD
Arkansas's Chelsea Dungee scored 103 points in the SEC Tournament, breaking the previous record of 90 set by Tennessee's Shelia Collins in 1985. Dungee was excited about setting the mark and even happier with the Razorbacks' potential for bigger things in the future. "We played great," she said. "And we're going to keep getting better."

UP NEXT
Arkansas waits to see if it gets an NCAA Tournament bid.
Mississippi State will wait to see if it can grab that No. 1 seed.

SEC Tournament Final: Mississippi State - Arkansas 101-70
SEC Tournament Semifinals:
Mississippi State - Missouri 71-56
Arkansas - Texas A&M 58-51
