Tigers Grind Out Road Win Over Ole Miss

Record crowd? No problem

LSU Women’s Basketball

A record 9,074 people came out to the SJB Pavilion to see the Ole Miss Rebels (11-4, 1-1) host the defending national champion LSU Tigers (15-1, 2-0).

They went home disappointed.

LSU beat Ole Miss 84-73 Sunday afternoon to push their winning streak to 15 games and improve to 2-0 in conference play. The winning streak is now the longest active streak in D1.

Of LSU’s 84 points, 83 came from the starters and the Tigers were led by Angel Reese’s 21 points and freshman phenom Mikaylah Williams’ 20.

“I don’t view her as a freshman,” Mulkey said of Williams. “She just has a college ready body, a mindset, and confidence.”

Williams was 4-5 from three, grabbed seven rebounds, had four steals, and snatched a pair of ankles.

Ole Miss is a program on the up and up and certainly gave LSU all they could handle. The Rebels trailed by three after the first quarter, and trailed by five going into the fourth quarter. But LSU showed Ole Miss they’ll need to level up a bit if they want to join LSU in the elite tier.

LSU will have a couple of days off before returning to the PMAC. The Tigers will take on Texas A&M Thursday night and will tip off at 7:00. The game can be streamed via SEC Network+.
