Richardson recently helped the USA to a 5-0 mark and a tournament title at the 2021 FIBA 3×3 Women’s Series stop in Klaipeda, Lithuania from July 30-31.
Mississippi State racked up a 111-34 record during Richardson’s four seasons in the Maroon and White from 2013-14 to 2016-17. The Bulldogs made two NCAA Final Four trips, headed by a 34-5 mark and a National Championship Game appearance during her senior season.
Richardson amassed 1,110 career points and 727 career rebounds. The 1,110 points are 20th, while her 727 rebounds sit 10th in program history. One of the most memorable moments of her State career was her go-ahead three-pointer with 34 seconds left during a 74-72 win over Michigan State that secured a NCAA Sweet 16 berth during her junior season in 2015-16.
