BILOXI, Miss. -- Mississippi State earned its third win of the season, even if this one wont be remembered for its beauty.Victoria Vivians scored 17 points, Breanna Richardson added 11 and the 10th-ranked Bulldogs beat Tulane 66-49 on Wednesday night at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.Both teams struggled to score points early, but when the Bulldogs (3-0) began to find their shot in the second quarter, Tulane (1-1) stayed cold.The Green Wave went scoreless in the final 4:36 of the second quarter, which helped Mississippi State take a 36-16 advantage into halftime.Tulanes best chance at mounting an upset bridged the third and fourth quarters thanks to a 10-0 run. The rally was aided by consecutive 3-pointers from Leslie Vorpahl, bringing the Green Wave within 47-35. Mississippi State responded with its own small run, however, to squash the comeback attempt.Tulanes late run -- coupled with the Bulldogs shooting just 36.1 percent from the field -- frustrated MSU coach Vic Schaefer.I didnt think we had some kids who came out in the second half and were ready to play. I think if youre going to be who everybody says we are, if were going to be a top 10 team, then you come out and win (the second half) by 20 again, Schaefer said. You dont come out and stink it up and play dead even with them in the second half.Vorpahl carried the Green Wave. The senior guard scored 20 points on 9 of 11 shooting from the floor.She came in and really competed and did a good job of running the team and also looking for her shot, Tulane coach Lisa Stockton said.Harlyn Wyatt added 10 points for Tulane.Mississippi State has won four straight over the Green Wave.HOME SWEET HOMEMississippi State freshman Ameshya Williams and sophomore Jazzmun Holmes played in front of their hometown fans for the first time as college athletes. Both graduated from nearby high schools and saw time off the bench. Williams scored four points with three rebounds in the final five minutes of the game. Holmes finished with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 14 minutes.STAT OF THE NIGHTMississippi State grabbed 24 offensive rebounds and finished with 26 second-chance points, dwarfing Tulanes seven second-chance points.Our defense, even in the first half, I dont think was bad, Stockton said. They were shooting 30-something percent, but it was the offensive rebounds that were keeping them in it.COOLING OFFMississippi State entered Wednesday nights game shooting 57.7 percent from 3-point range. The Wave held the Bulldogs to just 23.5 percent on 4 of 17 shooting.BIG PICTUREMississippi State: Fresh off of dominant wins against Villanova and Maine in their first two games of the season, the Bulldogs continued to show why theyre a top 10 team.Tulane: After a convincing showing in a 79-56 season-opening win against Grambling on Nov. 12, the Green Wave suffered their first setback of the season.UP NEXTMississippi State: The Bulldogs have a big test awaiting them at 5 p.m. Sunday when they host No. 8 Texas (1-1) in Starkville.Tulane: The Green Wave travel to face Southern Miss on Sunday.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- If you are a fan of offensive football, the 2016 Dynacraft Conference USA Championship game was one for you as Western Kentucky and Louisiana Tech combined for over one thousand yards and one hundred points in the Hilltoppers 58-44 victory to secure their second consecutive C-USA championship.But is this the end for head coach Jeff Brohm at WKU?Rumors surround the coach as he has been linked to the opening at Purdue, and while Brohm was asked about his future, he was vague in his response.Well, I think people that know me, especially our players and people that are around me, Im not a big self-promotion guy. I dont get into all that, Brohm said. I think I understand how the process works and a lot of times when your team does well. The head coaches tend to get a lot of credit. When you dont do well, you get a lot of blame.So I think whats going on now is a credit to our players, theyve played outstanding. We have great players and a great team which is a credit to our assistant coaches. Theyve got a lot of experience and have done a great job in trying to find a way to improve each and every year, and I think at this time of the year, myself, and whatever teams are in championship games, these things are going to happen,As for the game, Brohms team was outstanding lead by running back Anthony Wales.Wales rushed for 209 yards and four touchdowns, Mike White threw for 421 and three more scores and Western Kentucky defeated Louisiana Tech 58-44 on Saturday in the Conference USA championship game.The Hilltoppers (10-3) and Bulldogs (8-5), who won the regular-season matchup 55-52 on Oct. 6, combined for 1,163 yards of total offense in the highest scoring championship game in C-USA history. It is the second straight title for Western Kentucky, which is headed to its third bowl in a row and fourth in five years.Following a 1-yard run by Kam McKnight that gave the Bulldogs their only lead oof the second half at 38-34, Western Kentucky would take control in outscoring the Bulldogs 24-6 over the final 24 minutes.ddddddddddddWales would score twice on runs of 15 and 13 yards, with the last proving to be the backbreaker and provided the final margin.Wales also had a receiving touchdown with five catches for 53 yards.Ryan Higgins threw for 502 yards and three touchdowns for the Bulldogs.THE TAKEAWAYWestern Kentucky: Wales was named the Most Outstanding Player after his 36-carry effort, and drew praise from his head coach Jeff Brohm.Hes (Wales) an outstanding player and every game that we have him, were going to be a very good football team, said Brohm. He carries the load for us and even one time today he wanted to come out and I tried to talk him into going back in. Luckily I think we took a timeout and he stayed in. But he carried the load.Louisiana Tech: After coming from behind to take a 38-34 lead with 13:15 remaining in the third quarter, the Bulldogs were outscored 24-6 the remainder of the second half.Losing stinks, coach Skip Holtz said. Give them credit, they made the plays they needed to make, but I though we missed several plays in the second half that we should have made.HERE TO HELPWestern Kentucky became the first team in conference history to host back-to-back C-USA title games and win both on their home field, and in the process set several league and national records.In todays game, the two teams combined for a conference record 1,163 yards and102 points, both conference record. The combined 102 points set an NCAA record for combined points in a conference championship game.UP NEXTWestern Kentucky: A bowl game, with location and opponent to be announced Sunday.Louisiana Tech: A likely bowl game, with location and opponent to be announced on Sunday.
