LSUA Women’s Basketball Team Reacts to LSU Tigers Championship Win

The LSU Tigers defeated the Iowa Hawkeyes, 102 to 85.

ABC 31 Sports Reporter Keisha Swafford has the story on how the LSUA women’s basketball team reacted to their win.


In only two years under Kim Mulkey, the LSU Tigers are raising a trophy as champs.

LSU Champion Alexis Morris says, “When I think of this team, I think we’re amazing. A lot of different personalities, but you know, we piece it together at the right time, we start clicking at the right time and that’s what matters the most.”


Their offense proved to be strong, scoring the highest game in LSU history.

LSUA Shooting Guard Jewel Jones says, “It was a proud moment to be honest because I’m from Baton Rouge, like that’s my hometown. So, knowing that LSU won, that’s like a proud moment of my city.”


The LSUA generals say watching LSU play motivated them to work hard in the off season.

LSUA Point Guard Aniyah Roundtree says, “Alexis Morris inspires me the most because you know, we play the same position, and her midrange is just immaculate and she’s just a great player all around.”


The players say they plan to build a strong bond on and off the court.

LSUA Women’s Basketball Coach Billy Perkins says, “Just watching these girls and how they’ve worked in the off season right here with the weights and the conditioning and stuff that it’s going to be an exciting year.”


Aniyah Roundtree says Kim Mulkey and the LSU Tigers taught her to power through adversity.

“They were kinda the underdogs because you feel like Iowa was going to come out and just put a beating on them, but they actually showed up for the game and they actually fought with everything that they had until the last minute, and I think that shows a lot about their character.”

The LSU Tigers showed the world to never underestimate the underdog.


The LSUA Generals will have their first summer training camp in June.
