After two wins in Starkville to open up the NCAA Tournament, the Bulldog women are headed West for the Sweet 16 later this week.
A Bulldog win over Clemson on Sunday set up a matchup with 5th-seeded Arizona State on Friday, and it has now been announced that the game will begin at 8 p.m. CT.
Friday’s tip times have been set!

While Mississippi State has blown out their first two opponents in the tournament, ASU beat UCF 60-45 in round one and narrowly moved past Miami 57-55 in round two to earn their spot in the Sweet 16.
During the regular season, the Sun Devils went 3-7 against ranked opponents.
This is the fourth straight season that the Bulldogs have made it to the Sweet 16, and a win on Friday would put them up against either South Dakota State or Oregon in the Elite 8 on Sunday.
