  • Angel Reese, Aneesah Morrow Named To Naismith Defensive Player Of The Year Watchlist

    8 FEB 2024 · The 13th-ranked women’s basketball team takes on Vanderbilt tonight in Nashville for a Music City matchup! The Tigers just had their best SEC win over Florida and look to keep the momentum high over the Commodores. Aneesah Morrow and Angel Reese were just named to the Naismith Defensive Player of the Year Watchlist. The Tigers will take on Vanderbilt at 8 pm on the SEC Network. Dalton Knecht had 27 points, seven rebounds and six assists to lead No. 6 Tennessee to an 88-68 victory over LSU on Wednesday night. Zakai Zeigler had 17 points, nine assists and five steals and Jordan Gainey came off the bench to score 18 for the Volunteers (17-5, 7-2 Southeastern Conference). “It’s important to note there are some really good players around Knecht,” LSU coach Matt McMahon said. “He has turned himself into a Top 10 NBA pick. It’s a tough cover. We just make his shots as difficult as we can.” Will Baker had 16 points and Derek Fountain scored 11 for the Tigers (12-10, 4-5). “Zeigler does a great job organizing that team,” McMahon said. “When he’s is shooting well, he’s hard to cover.” The most interesting statistic came with LSU dominating the rebounding 40-27. Trae Hannibal, a 6-foot-2 guard, led the way with 11. “I thought we tried to rebound the ball with one hand,” Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. “You've gotta grab it and secure the ball with two hands. You can't be a great team if you can't rebound the ball.” Tennessee led by as many as 26 points early in the second half. LSU went on a 13-0 run midway through the second and got as close as eight before a three-point play by Knecht bumped the lead back to double digits. “(Tennessee's) pressure really bothered us,” said McMahon. “We didn't have anything left in the tank. We couldn't get it any closer than eight.” Softball season is finally here! The No. 14/15 Tigers will host Nicholls tonight at 6 pm at Tiger Park. LSU has won 33-straight against the Colonels. The rest of the weekend, they’ll host the 2024 LSU Invitational with Pittsburgh and Memphis. All games this weekend will be streamed on SEC Network+. Two Tigers are headed back to Augusta! Latanna Stone and Ingrid Lindblad received invites to the 2024 Augusta National Women’s Amateur in April. Joining them will be LSU signee and younger sister of current Tiger Carla Tejedo, Rocio Tejedo. Ingrid remains the World No. 1 Amateur, and has held that position for the last 36 weeks. She was also named the SEC Golfer of the Week after her second-place finish in the Puerto Rico Classic.

    Aneesah Morrow, Mikaylah Williams, Hailey Van Lith Lead LSU To Big Win Over Florida | REACTION

    5 FEB 2024 · Aneesah Morrow had 18 points, 20 rebounds, two blocks and a steal, and No. 9 LSU snapped a two-game skid with a resounding 106-66 victory over Florida on Sunday. Hailey Van Lith and Mikaylah Williams each scored 21 points, and Angel Reese added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers (19-4, 6-3 SEC), who raced to a double-digit lead in the first quarter and led by as many as 45 points in the second half. LSU was looking to rediscover its dominant form after a surprising road loss last Monday night at unranked Mississippi State — a result that followed a disheartening Jan. 25 home loss to unbeaten and No. 1 South Carolina after the Tigers had led most of that game. Flau'Jae Johnson scored 10 points to give all five starters at least that many. Morrow scored from all over the offensive end, complementing her putbacks and generally powerful play in the paint with a pair of 3s. Aliyah Matharu led Florida (11-9, 2-6) with 16 points and five steals and Leilani Correa added 13 points. After Florida opened with a 6-2 lead, LSU took control by scoring 10 straight in a span of 1:57 — part of a run that grew to 14 straight. The surge included a pair of transition jumpers by Williams and Johnson's right-wing 3. When Williams wasn't scoring, Van Lith was hitting mid-range jumpers off screens, or Reese was scoring from the paint and at the foul line. The Tigers avoided what would have been their first three-game losing streak since coach Kim Mulkey took over before the 2021-22 season. They have had just two two-game skids and never lost two straight last season, when they won the national title. ... Morrow had her team-leading 14th double-double in 23 games played, while Reese had her 13th in her 19th game played.

  • Haleigh Bryant & Kiya Johnson Score PERFECT 10’s To Lead LSU To Win Over Kentucky

    22 JAN 2024 · The LSU women’s basketball took a tumble in the rankings following last weekend’s loss to Auburn, which was its first in SEC play. But the Tigers remained in the top 10, and after a 2-0 week that featured decisive wins over Alabama and Arkansas, they are moving back up in the rankings. In the latest AP Top 25, they moved up one spot to No. 9. That will set up a top-10 matchup on Thursday night at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center as undefeated No. 1 South Carolina comes to town with ESPN’s College GameDay in attendance. LSU will look to snap the Gamecocks’ nation-leading 27-game road winning streak. The Tigers are 18-2 on the year and 4-1 in SEC play so far. With a win on Thursday night, they would almost certainly climb back into the top five. LSU’s men’s basketball team seems to have turned something of a corner to begin SEC play. After a rough non-conference stretch, the team began SEC play 3-1 with a ranked road win against Ole Miss. It also took down Texas A&M by double-digits on the road, but it couldn’t get the sweep when it hosted the Aggies again on Saturday in what was a 73-69 loss. LSU gymnastics began conference competition on Friday, hosting No. 6 Kentucky in the PMAC. It couldn’t have gone much better for LSU with the Tigers posting a score of 198.125, the highest score we’ve seen around the country this year. LSU had a strong performance on vault, headlined by a 9.975 from Haleigh Bryant and a 9.925 from Savannah Schoenherr. But it was the floor that pushed LSU’s score into the upper echelon. The Tigers’ floor score would have been a season-high for any team in the country and was the third-highest in program history. Kiya Johnson stole the show and anchored the rotation with a perfect 10. Johnson finished with a 39.650 in the all-around, a season-high for her. The win was Jay Clark’s 50th career victory at LSU after taking over the program in 2021. Next up for the Tigers is a trip to Missouri on Friday. Missouri, which is coming off a win against No. 20 Georgia and has just one loss to No. 4 Alabama, will be another tough test for LSU.

  • Mikaylah Williams, Hailey Van Lith Lead LSU To BIG Win Over Arkansas | LSU Women’s Basketball Recap

    22 JAN 2024 · No. 10 LSU women's basketball, behind an 18-0 run to open the game, had doubled up the Hogs by the midway point through the second quarter. Shooting north of 40% in the first 13 minutes, led by the outside shot, the Tigers cruised to a 99-68 victory Sunday night. The win for LSU (18-2, 5-1) and Kim Mulkey sets the stage for a monster showdown with No. 1 South Carolina (17-0, 5-0) and Dawn Staley Thursday night. Against Arkansas, she may have regained her footing. The Bossier City product scored 15 of the team's first 33 points, going 6-of-7 from the field during that stretch. Williams knocked down three 3's in the first 12 minutes. Her passing and rebounding made a difference as well, securing boards, racing down the court to find open teammates. The freshman finished with a game-high 21 points along with nine rebounds and three assists. In the scorching first half, it was all about the drive-and-kick game with the guards to open wing players. The Tigers were hot and the shots from Williams, Van Lith, Flau'jae Johnson – even Angel Reese hit a 3 – were falling in the first half to give LSU a big, 55-28 halftime lead. Out of the locker room, Mulkey called for her team to focus on the inside game with Reese and Aneesah Morrow. Reese finished with 16 points, 17 rebounds and Morrow kicked in 14. The team scored 22 points in the paint in the second half. From the tip, LSU was determined to get the ball out and run in transition off misses. It just so happened that Arkansas plenty of shots, making just 28% of its attempts and the Tiger guards, Hailey Van Lith, Williams, Last-Tear Poa and Flau'jae Johnson used that to their advantage. LSU pushed the pace, drove the basket a lot and dished when the land wasn't open. That led to open 3-pointers, which the Tigers knocked down 8-of-16 of those. Van Lith, who scored 20, and Poa led LSU's quick approach, each with six assists. As a team, the Tigers finished with 21.

    Angel Reese, Aneesah Morrow Rack Double-Doubles + Livvy Dunne, LSU Gymnastics Kentucky Preview

    20 JAN 2024 · For Alabama, they brought their best. But LSU made adjustments and broke away in the second half to secure a 78-58 win. The Crimson Tide had a 35-34 lead at halftime, but held Alabama to just 10 points in the third quarter. Angel Reese was contained in the first half, but she found a crack in the Crimson Tide’s system in the second half. She finished with 20 points and 17 rebounds. But Aneesah Morrow and Flau’jae Johnson especially stepped up when Alabama contained Reese. Morrow finished with her 12th double-double of the season with 20 points and 11 rebounds. With Reese being contained in the first half, Morrow finding the basket showed that it’s difficult for opposing teams to stop both Reese and Morrow. Morrow even shot 2 for 3 from three, and had three steals. Johnson also remained consistent on Thursday night with 10 points and eight rebounds. The sophomore guard has been arguably one of LSU’s best defensive players, as she also finished with three steals. Hailey Van Lith also had three steals along with eight points and four assists. Mikaylah Williams finished with 14 points for the Tigers, but once again remained quiet in the Tigers’ win. LSU forced 19 turnovers from Alabama as opposed to 12 turnovers from the Tigers.

    Jordan Wright BALLS OUT, Corey Raymond Is BACK & EXCLUSIVE LSU Tiger Girls Content

    18 JAN 2024 · He's back. LSU is finalizing a deal with Corey Raymond to return as the next defensive backs coach of the Tigers after a stint at Florida. The anticipation is that he will take on duties with the cornerbacks, but a title is still being worked out, sources tell LSU Country. Raymond, an architect to the "DBU" tradition in Baton Rouge, makes his way back to Death Valley for a second run with the Bayou Bengals. Raymond spent 10 seasons with the Tigers before Brian Kelly’s arrival to Baton Rouge ahead of the 2022 season. Raymond then coached the defensive backs at Florida for two seasons under Billy Napier before the two sides parted ways. Raymond’s secondary has produced seven First-Team All-Americans during his time at LSU, a list that includes Eric Reid (2012), Jalen Mills (2015), Jamal Adams (2016), Tre’Davious White (2016), Greedy Williams (2018), Grant Delpit (2018 and 2019) and Derek Stingley Jr. (2019, 2020). LSU is also expected to tab Jake Olsen as the Tigers' safeties coach. Olsen reportedly came with LSU's new defensive coordinator Blake Baker to Baton Rouge and has been at LSU the last couple of weeks, but it has not been clear if he would assume an on-field coaching role. The last two seasons, Olsen served as a defensive analyst at Missouri where he worked under Baker and also has previous experience as a special teams coordinator. Prior to his stint in Columbia, Missouri, Olsen was on Ed Orgeron's staff at LSU in 2021. Tigers defensive tackle Jacobian Guillory did not enter his name into the 2024 NFL draft prior to Monday’s deadline and instead plans to return to LSU for what will be his redshirt senior season. A former four-star prospect from Alexandria, Louisiana, Guillory has mostly been a rotational player in his four years at LSU. He’s appeared in 39 games but made just three starts, two of which came in 2022 and one of which was this past season. Coming off their first loss in conference play this season on the road against Auburn, the LSU women’s basketball team finds itself back in a hostile road environment on Thursday night as it travels to Coleman Coliseum to take on Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Every road game the Tigers have played so far this season has either set a program/arena record or been a shutout, and this will likely be no different as the Crimson Tide look for a huge win. Alabama sits at 15-4 on the year but is just 2-2 in SEC play and coming off an 18-point loss to Arkansas at home its last time out. Here’s what you need to know to watch as LSU looks for a similar result in Tuscaloosa. LSU earned its first ranked win of the season on Wednesday night, moving to 11-6 overall and 3-1 in SEC play with an 89-80 win over the Ole Miss Rebels in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The Rebels managed to take several decent-sized leads in the first half, and the Tigers found themselves trailing by as much as seven. But in large part thanks to big halves from Jordan Wright and Jalen Reed, who had 11 and eight points in the frame, respectively, LSU took a 35-33 lead to the locker room despite shooting just 41.4% as a team. However, the Tigers shot above 50% in the second half while Ole Miss shot just 32.4%. They stretched their lead to as much as 16 points, and though Ole Miss would cut it to single digits a few times, it never got closer than five points in the final 10 minutes. Wright finished with a game-high 27 points, while Jalen Cook ultimately finished behind him with 16 points. The Tigers allowed big nights to stars Jaylen Murray (23 points), Matthew Murrell (20 points) and Allen Flanigan (19 points), but the rest of the Rebels struggled to get going.
