Kim Mulkey provides positive update on LSU’s Last-Tear Poa after win over Ole Miss

LSU won 75-67 over Ole Miss in the SEC Tournament semifinal on Saturday night, advancing to the conference title game against undefeated, top-seeded South Carolina.

But that victory was overshadowed in many ways by a scary moment in the fourth quarter. After seemingly hitting her head on the court, junior guard Last-Tear Poa was unable to leave the court on her own.

She was ultimately placed in a neck brace and taken off the court on a stretcher. According to the broadcast, she was later taken to a hospital in downtown Greenville, South Carolina.

After the game, however, coach Kim Mulkey offered a positive update on Poa’s status. Her CT scan came back clean, and she has movement in her extremities.

Poa has mostly been a key bench player for the Tigers this season, but she was thrust into the starting lineup as Mikaylah Williams was out with an injury. It’s unclear what her status will be moving forward, but it seems the initial news on her condition is encouraging.
