Kim Mulkey applauds team’s selflessness with NIL money

NIL is a huge factor in college athletics these days. It has helped to distribute money to numerous athletes so they can make a little money off of their Name, Image and Likeness. LSU Women's Basketball has two players on the team who are ranked inside the top 20 of the On3 NIL 100.

Angel Reese and Flau'Jae Johnson are two of the highest-earning athletes in the NCAA. Although they make a good amount due to NIL, they aren’t selfish with the money that they earn. They have given back to LSU on numerous occasions.

Kim Mulkey recently talked about how awesome it is to see them give back with the money they have made.

“First of all, I don’t know what deals (Reese) has until she gives me a gift,” Mulkey said at halftime of Thursday’s SEC Tournament game between Arkansas and Auburn, per On3. “So she’ll give me Beats one year or something, and I’m like, what’s wrong with this picture? These young people are giving it to the coaches.”

“They do share their wealth,” Mulkey said. “Angel does a lot for her community back in Baltimore, she’s done a lot for Baton Rouge. And Flau’jae, I have to mention Flau’jae. She’s the same way. Those young ladies are very, very unselfish when it comes to helping people.”

The LSU ladies are 26-4 this year and will take on Auburn in their first game of the SEC Tournament.
