Women’s Basketball Back In AP Top 25

BATON ROUGE – The LSU women’s basketball team is back in the Associate Press Top 25 Women’s Basketball Poll for the first time since the end of the 2017-18 season. The Tigers come into the Dec. 2 poll ranked No. 25.

LSU is now 7-1 with its sixth consecutive victory. It is the first time LSU has started the season 7-1 since the 2013-14 season when the Tigers were ranked in the top 15 and advanced as far as the NCAA Sweet 16.

LSU picked up a big win on Friday against then-No. 15 Michigan State, 58-56, and went on to beat Memphis, 89-58 on Saturday to win the Bimini Division of the Junkanoo Jam. Since the lone loss on the season to now-No. 8 Florida State, LSU has beaten Little Rock, Rutgers and Michigan State, all 2019 NCAA Tournament teams.

LSU returns to the court Tuesday morning against Nicholls State at 11 a.m. in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center for the annual Field Trip Game.
