LSU’s Mikaylah Williams earns SEC Freshman of the Year honors

While much of the offseason attention was placed on LSU’s transfer portal additions, arguably the most impactful new player on the team this season came via high school recruiting.

Mikaylah Williams has been named the SEC Freshman of the Year after a fantastic first campaign with the Tigers. With Angel Reese also being named the SEC Player of the Year, LSU becomes the first school to have players win both awards since South Carolina in 2015.

The top high school recruit in the country, Williams is averaging 14.9 points and 4.9 rebounds, with the headline being a 42-point showing against Kent State, the most points scored by an LSU freshman in the NCAA era.

She was, unsurprisingly, also named to the SEC All-Freshman Team along with Aalyah Del Rosario.
