KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Mississippi State lowers the curtains on its 38th season of volleyball Friday night with a 6 p.m. (CST) match against defending SEC champion Tennessee at Thompson Boling Arena.

The match closes out the collegiate career for MSU's lone senior, Chanelle Baker (Carrollton, Texas), who in 362 sets and 113 career matches played has compiled 609 kills, 415 digs and 169 blocks. Baker will also be playing opposite her sister, Tennessee sophomore Tiffany Baker, for the final time.

Both teams fell short in SEC competition Wednesday night. Despite an SEC season-best .252 attack percentage, the Bulldogs (4-24, 0-19 SEC) fell in straight at Georgia (18-25, 26-28, 20-25). The Lady Vols (21-7, 14-5 SEC) dropped a five-set thriller at home (15-25, 25-22, 25-20, 27-29, 15-9) to Texas A&M, slipping to third place in the overall conference standings.

Freshman Taylor Scott logged a match-high 13 kills and freshman Roxanne McVey took match honors with 19 digs, raising her SEC-leading digs total to 543.
