LSU’s Kim Mulkey explains what has changed since Tigers’ loss at Auburn

On Jan. 14, the LSU women’s basketball team was stunned on the road by the Auburn Tigers 67-62. It was the first loss for the Tigers after going on a 16-game win streak following a loss to Colorado at the start off the season.

Since then, the Tigers have won two conference games in a row and neither of them has been close. LSU won 78-58 against Alabama and 99-68 against the Arkansas Razorbacks.

LSU head coach Kim Mulkey recently discussed the change in the mentality of the team since the Auburn loss. The Tigers are currently 18-2 overall and 5-1 in conference play.

“Composure. Leadership in practice. In the Auburn game, we were all looking for someone to make a play and that goes for me as a coach as well,” Mulkey said, per On3. “(Tonight), they were playing very confident, very free, passing the ball up the floor, just doing a lot of active things. The crowd got into it and it was one of those games that was entertainment.”

LSU has a huge matchup on Thursday as it welcomes the No. 1 South Carolina Gamecocks to Baton Rouge.
