LSU women’s basketball falls short in SEC Tournament semifinal vs. Tennessee

The Tigers’ run in Greenville, South Carolina, came to a disappointing end on Saturday night as No. 2-seeded LSU lost 69-67 in Bon Secours Wellness Arena to the No. 3-seeded Tennessee Volunteers in the SEC Tournament semifinals.

The Tigers led 22-10 after the first quarter and took a 14-point lead to the locker room. However, LSU collapsed in the second half, hitting just 33.3% of its shots. It had a chance at the end with a potential game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer, but it fell short.

Angel Reese recorded a 22-point, 11-rebound double-double in the loss, while Alexis Morris had 20 points. However, the Tigers struggled against Tennessee star Rickea Jackson, who had a game-high 26 points.

LSU will now put wait for the tournament committee’s decision as far as seeding goes. Given that it didn’t have the chance to avenge a loss to South Carolina, it seems unlikely that this team will land a No. 1 seed, but we will have to wait until Sunday to find out.
