LSU women’s basketball rolls against Mississippi Valley State to second straight win

LSU continued to bounce back nicely from its season-opening loss, rolling against Mississippi Valley State to a 109-47 win at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

The Tigers had a nice game offensively, shooting above 50% from the field as a team. Sa'Myah Smith led the way offensively with 21 points, followed by Mikaylah Williams with 20.

Angel Reese and Aneesah Morrow totaled 14 points with the former notching a double-double, and Hailey Van Lith also scored in double figures with 11 points.

Despite some sloppiness offensively that resulted in 20 turnovers, the defense forced 27 from the Delta Devils, which shot just 17 of 70 for the game, and got 28 points from those opportunities.

The Tigers will be back in action on Tuesday afternoon when they host Kent State.
