Senior guard Darrione Rogers recorded the first triple-double by a Mississippi State women’s basketball player since Dec. 16, 2000, and only the second overall in program history with 14 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in 34 minutes in a 99-35 win over Mississippi Valley State on Friday, Dec. 29. It was the first triple-double by a SEC women’s basketball player since LSU’s Khayla Pointer on Feb. 7, 2021, and only the 40th triple-double in SEC women’s basketball history. Rogers made her fourth start of the season, filling in once more due to an injury. The triple-double was the second of Rogers’ career; she and Iowa’s Caitlin Clark are the only two players nationally to record a triple-double each of the last two seasons. It marks the 59th game with 10-plus points, fourth with 10-plus assists and ninth with 10-plus rebounds for Rogers’ career. She turned in 10 of Mississippi State’s 20 assists in the effort to help Mississippi State earn its largest margin of victory under head coach Sam Purcell.
