Mississippi State women’s basketball player Chloe Bibby has decided to transfer to Maryland to finish out her college career.

“I would like to thank all the universities and coaches who took the time and effort in contacting me during this process,” Bibby wrote in her Twitter announcement. “I am excited to announce that I will be continuing my education and basketball journey at the University of Maryland. Go Terps!”

Bibby led the Bulldogs with 38 three-pointers last season playing under head coach Vic Shaefer. The decision of her transfer came shortly after Shaefer moved to the University of Texas to become the women’s basketball coach there.

“I also want to say a massive thank you to Mississippi State University and the bulldog family. I will be forever grateful for the love and support you showed me as a person and player,” Bibby wrote.

Overall in the 2019-2020 season, Bibby put up 7.5 points per game along and averaged 5.2 rebounds. Bibby’s season was cut short by a knee injury, but she made an impact on the Bulldogs when she was healthy.

Due to NCAA transfer rules, Bibby will have to sit out next season. She will be eligible to play again in 2021.

The annual Red Carpet Bowl date and teams have been announced for the 2021 football season.

The bowl is scheduled for Aug. 27, 2021, at Vicksburg High School. The Vicksburg High Gators and Warren Central High Vikings are the home teams.

Vicksburg will face Germantown and Warren Central will play Forest Hill next year in the big games, and the Viking/Forrest Hill game will be first.

Germantown finished this season with a 4-5 record, and Vicksburg also won 4 games which should make it a competitive match. Forest Hill opted out of the 2020 season and Warren Central is still playing, with a berth in this year’s playoffs.

The two home teams will swap opponents  for the 2022 season.

As of now, most high school teams in Mississippi are in offseason training, preparing for their  next season.
