Instant Analysis: LSU women’s basketball breezes past Tennessee, wins sixth straight game

Thanks in large part to a huge game from Hailey Van Lith, who finished with a season and game-high 26 points, the LSU women’s basketball game has now won six games in a row after a convincing 75-60 victory on the road against Tennessee.

The Tigers and Volunteers traded the lead in the first quarter, with LSU ultimately leading by three after the frame. But it stretched that lead in the second quarter and ultimately led 38-26 at the half.

However, after outscoring Tennessee 19-10 in the second quarter, the Vols outscored the Tigers by that same margin in the third. They cut the lead to just two at one point and only trailed by three entering the final period.

While Tennessee managed to cut the lead to just one at one point, it never led in the fourth quarter. LSU ultimately ended the game on an 18-5 run as it put things out of reach.

In addition to Van Lith’s big game, true freshman Mikaylah Williams scored 15 points. Angel Reese only managed 11, but she recorded her 18th double-double of the season with 16 rebounds.

The Tigers only have two remaining games in the regular season. They will hit the road to face Georgia on Thursday before Kentucky comes to town for Senior Day in the regular season finale on Sunday.
