LSU women’s basketball hosting All-American transfer visitor

The LSU women’s basketball team captured the first national championship in program history this season, but coach Kim Mulkey isn’t resting on her laurels.

The Tigers lost a couple of key pieces after the season, namely Alexis Morris and LaDazhia Williams, but they bring back stars Angel Reese and Flau'Jae Johnson, and they’ve been aggressive on the transfer portal market.

LSU has been a major player in the recruitment of Louisville guard Hailey Van Lith, and it will host another elite transfer on campus this weekend in DePaul forward Aneesah Morrow. The news was first reported by On3’s Matthew Brune.

Morrow averaged 25.7 points and 12.2 rebounds for the Blue Demons this season, earning Third Team All-American honors for her efforts. The 6-foot-1 Chicago native has two remaining years of eligibility and ranks as either the No. 1 or No. 2 player in the portal, depending on the rankings.

If LSU could land either Van Lith or Morrow (let alone both) it would almost certainly enter the 2023-24 season as the clear favorite to repeat as champions.
