Women's Basketball Record Crowd

History made at the Hump

A school-record 10,626 packed Humphrey Coliseum Sunday [Jan. 25] night to watch the No. 10-ranked Mississippi State women's basketball team battle No. 2 South Carolina to the final seconds of a Southeastern Conference thriller. In the end, a veteran South Carolina squad made enough plays to hold off MSU’s spirited upset bid, grabbing a dramatic 57-51 victory. Sunday's crowd set a program and state attendance record for a women's basketball game and marked the fourth-largest crowd in Humphrey Coliseum history.
