The LSU women’s basketball team made history on Saturday afternoon with a big win over the No. 1 ranked team in the country, the South Carolina Gamecocks. The victory marked the first time in program history that the Lady Tigers had defeated a top-ranked team.

The game was a true test of strength and determination for the LSU team, who came into the matchup as heavy underdogs. However, they showed incredible resilience and fought tooth and nail for every basket, ultimately coming out on top with a final score of 68-64.

LSU coach Kim Mulkey praised her team’s effort and determination after the game, saying, “I am so proud of these young women and the heart and passion they showed on the court today. They never gave up, they never backed down, and they truly played like champions.”

They forced South Carolina into 17 turnovers and converted those opportunities into 20 points off turnovers. Additionally, the Lady Tigers dominated the boards, outrebounding the Gamecocks 40-36.

Senior guard Khayla Pointer led the way for LSU with a game-high 24 points, including several clutch baskets down the stretch to seal the win. Junior forward Faustine Aifuwa also had a standout performance, finishing with a double-double of 10 points and 12 rebounds.

The win marks a significant milestone for the LSU women’s basketball program, which has been on the rise under Coach Mulkey’s leadership. The team is now ranked No. 10 in the country and is poised to make a deep run in the NCAA tournament.

With this historic victory under their belt, the Lady Tigers are primed for a successful season ahead. As they continue to build on this momentum and work towards their goals, there’s no telling how far they can go.

In the meantime, LSU fans are celebrating this momentous win and basking in the glory of an unforgettable upset. The team’s perseverance and grit in the face of adversity have inspired a new sense of pride and belief in the program, setting the stage for an exciting future ahead.
