LSU Women's Basketball Team Makes History with First NCAA Championship Win
LSU makes history with first NCAA championship win after defeating Iowa 102-85 in the final. It was their sixth appearance in the Final Four before finally breaking through to win the title.
Kim Mulkey, LSU's head coach, led her team to a national championship in just two years, despite being an underdog and going against player of the year Caitlin Clark. Mulkey never planned for this, but her enthusiasm and determination in the national title game paid off.
According to freshman Flau'Jae Johnson, the coach is legendary for having won two national championships at two different schools. Achieving her goals of being freshman of the year and winning a national championship, Johnson explains that her dreams have become a reality.
Mulkey and Carson led the Tigers to a 102-85 victory over Clark and Iowa in the highest-scoring national title game ever, cheered on by a passionate crowd.
LSU's championship win was a team effort, as most of the collective joined at the start of the season with nine new players, including Carson and Reese, and only one starter from the previous season.
LSU's dominant rebounding and bench scoring led them to victory against Iowa in front of a sellout crowd of 19,482. Mulkey's coaching prowess shone through as she claimed her fourth national title, becoming the first woman to coach multiple programs to a championship.
