STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Shortly after the final buzzer sounded Sunday in front of a near-capacity crowd of 9,933 at Humphrey Coliseum, Mississippi State coach Vic Schaefer grabbed a microphone.

The No. 2 Bulldogs had just wrapped up a 76-55 win over No. 17 Texas A&M. It was another ho-hum Southeastern Conference victory for Mississippi State (28-0, 14-0 SEC) outside of the fact that more history was made for Schaefer and company.

A win captured the first-ever SEC championship for any women's team in school history and Schaefer's tearful response to the fanbase he helped built capped it.
