LSU women’s basketball finishes sixth in final AP Top 25

It wasn’t the finish to the season that the defending national champion LSU women’s basketball team hoped it would be, but it was still a very successful Year 3 for coach Kim Mulkey.

The Tigers began the year with expectations to repeat, and though they had to work through some struggles during the season, they ultimately made it back to the Elite Eight, where they fell in a revenge game to eventual national runner-up Iowa.

Still, they’re moving up in the post-tournament final AP Top 25 rankings, rising a pair of spots from No. 8 to No. 6 after winning 30+ games for just the eighth time in program history.

Its 65 wins over the last two seasons also mark the second-most in program history behind 1976-78.
