Auburn women's basketball defeats Mississippi State at home

AUBURN, Ala. (EETV) - The Auburn women’s basketball team picked up a win on Senior Night Thursday over Mississippi State behind a career-high 32 points from Honesty Scott-Grayson. The Tigers led from the opening tip and never looked back, finishing with a final score of 77-60.

The win snapped an 11-game losing streak against the Bulldogs and was Auburn’s fifth victory over a top 50 NET opponent, which helps the March Madness resume of a Tigers team currently considered to be on the bubble.

Honesty Scott-Grayson, who had 2 assists and steals in addition to her career-high in points, checked out with the Tigers up by 17 and embraced coach Johnnie Harris.

"It was unreal," Scott-Grayson said. "I've been through a lot with Coach J, all the hard work, dedication, buying into her system, her believing in me. I appreciate her for that."

"She deserved that," Harris said. "Honesty is truly special. This place means a lot to her. This is a player who loves Auburn."

McKenna Eddings also had a big night for the Tigers, adding 13 points and 5 rebounds. JaMya Mingo-Young stuffed the stat sheet for 6 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists. In addition, the pair of Kaitlyn Duhon and Taylen Collins each had 8 points.

The Tigers look to close out the regular season on a high note with a trip to Gainesville to take on Florida on Sunday at 11. After that, Auburn will head to the SEC Tournament in Greenville, South Carolina.
