Women's Hoops Teams Up with Bethany Outreach
BATON ROUGE – The LSU women’s basketball team spent part of its Saturday serving the Baton Rouge community with the Bethany Outreach program in Baker.
The Lady Tigers taught drills and played games with close to 15 inner-city children. Afterwards, the team shared a motivational message and told the kids to work hard and never give up on their dreams.
“I know I wish I would have had something like this when I was younger coming up,” guard Raigyne Moncrief said. “It’s good to be out here with the kids, help them out and teach them some little things so when they grow up they’re excited about playing basketball or whatever they decide to do. It’s a blessing to make an impact. We like seeing them smile and laugh and enjoy themselves.”
Season tickets for the 2015-16 are on-sale online at www.LSUtix.net or by contacting the LSU Athletics Ticket Office at (225) 578-2184 or (800) 960-8587.
