STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Martha Alwal's jumper with 3.3 seconds left gave her 23 points and Mississippi State a 64-62 upset of No. 16 Vanderbilt on Sunday.

Katia May drove to the basket and dished off to Alwal, who scored over Rayte'a Long. The Bulldogs then intercepted the inbounds pass to end it.

Breanna Richardson added 16 points for Mississippi State (17-9, 4-8 SEC).

Christina Foggie led the Commodores (17-8, 6-6) with 15 points, including a tying basket on Long's assist with 15 seconds left. Jasmine Lister and Mogan Batey had 13 points each with Batey grabbing 11 rebounds.

Vanderbilt shot 56 percent and outrebounded MSU 32-18 but couldn't overcome 26 turnovers.

The Commodores led 28-21 at halftime but Mississippi State caught up with 8:34 left as Alwal followed a jump shot with a pair of free throws.

With Alwal going 7 for 7, the Bulldogs were 16 of 20 from the line.
