Over 15,000 fans packed the P-Mac last night to watch the third-ranked Lady Tigers remain undefeated last night. The LSU women’s basketball team defeated Tennessee 76-68 in front of the largest recorded crowd at the P-MAC since the 2005 renovation. Coach Kim Mulkey said the atmosphere was electric.
The Lady Tigers improve to 21-0 on the season. They’ll host Georgia Thursday.
The Pelicans will visit the Nuggets tonight. Denver leads the Western Conference while the Pelicans are the coldest team in the NBA. They’ve gone 3-13 since early January and lost their last 8 straight even after the return of forward Brandon Ingram. New Orleans sits at 8th in the west after being first earlier this season and will look to get back on track tonight. Ingram and CJ McCollum will make their return tonight while rookie guard Dyson Daniels remains out. Tip-off is at 9:00.
The top-ranked LSU baseball team has started full-squad practices. With one of the most loaded rosters in the nation, expectations are high for the tigers this year. LSU had the top-ranked recruiting and transfer classes in the country this offseason, and one of the big additions is third baseman Tommy White. White hit 27 home runs last season with NC State and says LSU could have a high-powered offense this year…
Pelicans sophomores Trey Murphy and Jose Alvarado were named 2023 Jordan Rising Stars for NBA All-Star weekend. A pool of 28 rookies, sophomores, and G-League players is selected to participate in a three-game mini-tournament. Murphy, who was drafted 17th overall last year, was also invited to participate in the NBA Dunk Contest. Murphy is one of the best young shooters in the league, shooting almost 40% from deep, but has emerged as one of the NBA’s most electric dunkers this season. Zion Williamson was also named an All-Star Starter this year but may not be able to participate due to injury.
