LSU reaches Final Four of women’s NCAA Tournament after win over Miami

It wasn’t pretty but it was a win — and no, we’re not just talking about LSU coach Kim Mulkey’s outfit. 

Mulkey’s Tigers got 13 points and 18 rebounds from All-American Angel Reese and third-seeded LSU beat upset-minded Miami, 54-42, to advance to the Final Four. 

It’s the first Final Four since 2008 for LSU. From 2005-2008 the Tigers made five consecutive trips to the Final Four, losing in national semifinals each time.

Helping LSU back to college basketball’s promised land is exactly why Mulkey went home. A Louisiana native who returned to the state in 2021 to lead the state’s flagship university, she brought an impressive resume to Baton Rouge. In 21 seasons at Baylor, Mulkey went to four Final Fours and won three national titles. As a player at Louisiana Tech, she led the Lady Techsters to two national titles and four Final Fours.
