Maggie McFerrin called Thursday’s result weeks ago.
When talking about the Ole Miss Lady Rebels’ most recent loss at Mississippi State, the senior reserve grumbled that her team hadn’t beaten their in-state rival in six attempts.
But, she huffed, “we’ll get them next time.”
Apparently the Tupelo native was right.
Hosting the Lady Bulldogs for a Valentines Day special, the Lady Rebels proved there was no love lost between the two rivals as they rallied from a 12-point first-half deficit to knock off MSU 65-51.
Following the game, it was clear the losing streak feels like it lasted much longer than just six games.
