HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) Anriel Howard's willingness to expend every ounce of energy crashing around the paint for rebounds and loose balls has helped make Mississippi State's offense one of the nation's best so far this season.

Howard scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds in another impressive all-around performance on Friday night that helped the fifth-ranked Bulldogs beat Southern Mississippi 86-42.

"I love her passion for rebounding, she loves the dirty work," Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer said. "She embraces that, which we desperately need."
