STARKVILLE, Miss. – Reigning Gillom Trophy winner Martha Alwal and junior Jerica James scored 19 points each as the Mississippi State women’s basketball team put together an impressive showing in its Maroon-White scrimmage at Humphrey Coliseum.

“I think we’re a lot different this year,” second-year head coach Vic Schaefer said. “I was really pleased with our competitiveness and our skill set. I’m very encouraged after tonight.”

Alwal, a second-team All-SEC selection as a sophomore last season, went 8-for-11 over the five-quarter scrimmage and hauled in six rebounds while blocking a pair of shots.

James also collected six rebounds and six assists in the contest to go along with a solid 7-for-12 shooting night that included an impressive 3-for-4 effort behind the 3-point stripe.

Senior Katia May, James’ backcourt mate, tallied 13 points and a team-high seven assists, while junior Kendra Grant and freshman Breanna Richardson tallied 12 points apiece.

Fellow rookie Dominique Dillingham also reached double-figures with 10 points.

Freshman Ketara Chapel went 4-for-5 from the floor and handed out six assists to finish with nine points. Newcomer Savannah Carter, who won the NJCAA Division I national championship with Trinity Valley Community College last season, recorded eight points in the contest.

The Bulldogs shot 46.5-percent from the field as a unit, including a 40-percent tally beyond the arc.

Mississippi State hosts Shorter in a free exhibition contest Mon., Nov. 4 at 7 p.m. The Bulldogs open the regular season at Houston Nov. 8 before returning home to host Jackson State in a 7 p.m. tip on Nov. 13.
