MSU registered SEC season-highs for kills and attack percentage last weekend in home matches against defending SEC champion Tennessee and SEC West foe Alabama. Junior Dani McCree registered 25 kills and a team-best .323 attack percentage. Freshman Taylor Scott also totaled 25 kills, raising her team-leading total to 234. SEC digs leader Roxanne McVey piled up 37 digs against Alabama, raising her season digs total to 474 and her per-set digs average to 5.64, 12th-best in the NCAA.
State enters the match in search of its first league win and an end to a 16-match dry spell.
