Women’s Basketball Climbs One Spot To No. 12 in AP Poll

BATON ROUGE – The LSU Women’s Basketball team (15-2, 3-1) climbed up one spot to No. 12 in Monday’s AP Poll despite falling to No. 1 South Carolina last Thursday before bouncing back on the road at Auburn on Sunday.

After battling valiantly against the top-ranked Gamecocks in front of the 15th largest LSU Women’s Basketball crowd in the PMAC ever (9,190) the Tigers showed the ability to bounce back with a dominating, 76-48, win on the road at Auburn Sunday for LSU’s second largest win over Auburn ever.

LSU must protect home court this week as the Tigers will host Missouri on Thursday at 7 p.m. and Vanderbilt at noon on Sunday.
