LSU women’s basketball sets attendance record at PMAC in win over Mississippi State

There was a packed house on hand  — literally — at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Sunday evening as the LSU women’s basketball team beat Mississippi State 74-59 to close out the regular season at 27-1, matching the program-best win total from 2004-05.

With an announced attendance at 15,721 for senior night, it was the largest crowd the PMAC has seen for any event since the venue opened in 1972 with more than 2,000 more people in attendance than the official capacity.

LSU closed out one of the best regular seasons in program history under second-year coach Kim Mulkey, but it’s looking for more. The Tigers are the No. 2 seed at the SEC Tournament in Greenville, South Carolina, this week and could have the opportunity to avenge their lone loss of the year against top-ranked, undefeated South Carolina.

If LSU can make a championship run and defeat the Gamecocks, Mulkey’s team will likely be in line for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
