JACKSON, Mississippi (Ticker) -- Lawrence Roberts and Mississippi State are now done feasting on cupcakes.
Roberts had 22 points and 20 rebounds as the 24th-ranked Bulldogs cruised to a 95-53 rout of overmatched Jacksonville State.
Concluding a stretch of three games in five days at three different sites, the Bulldogs (11-2) opened a 42-28 lead at the half and pulled away for another easy victory.
Mississippi State has won its last five games by an average of 23.4 points. But things should get much tougher for the Bulldogs, who are now off until opening their Southeastern Conference schedule against Auburn on January 5.
Roberts, the reigning SEC Player of the Year, made 9-of-12 shots in his latest big game and fell one rebound shy of his career high. He scored 25 points on 7-of-11 shooting in Monday's 104-80 rout of Florida A&M.
Roberts also fell one rebound shy of matching the Gamecocks' entire total. The Bulldogs held a 59-21 advantage on the boards, including a 21-8 edge on the offensive glass.
Winsome Frazier added 12 points and Gary Ervin 11 and 10 assists for the Bulldogs, who shot 54 percent (37-of-68).
Mississippi State, which surpassed 90 points for the third time this season, overcame 18 turnovers.
In their latest lopsided win, the Bulldogs used a pair of huge runs. They opened the contest with an 18-4 surge, then took control of the game by scoring the first 17 points of the second half for a 59-28 bulge.
Brandon Davis scored 15 points and Dorein Brown 13 for the Gamecocks (4-7), who shot 34 percent (20-of-59) and made just 10-of-21 free throws.
The game was played at the Mississippi Coliseum, located about 150 miles from the Bulldogs' campus in Starkville.
