The contest is a rematch of the 2015 NCAA Tournament opening round, a game MSU won 57-47 in Durham, N.C. That victory was the third-straight for State in a series it leads 6-5.
Vic Schaefer’s fifth Bulldog squad, which is ranked in the Top 10 of numerous preseason polls, returns all five starters and nine letterwinners from last year’s team that won a school-record 28 games, tied for second in the SEC and advanced to program’s second NCAA Sweet 16.
Tulane also brings back nine letterwinners, including three starters, from its 2015-16 team that went 23-12 and ended the year in the third round of the WNIT.
