LSU women’s basketball transfers Hailey Van Lith, Aneesah Morrow earn AP Preseason Honorable Mention honors

LSU’s women’s basketball team looks primed to repeat as national champions in 2023-24 despite losing a couple of key players from last year’s squad.

A major reason for that is the transfer portal class coach Kim Mulkey brought in this offseason, which was headlined by a pair of All-Americans last season in guard Hailey Van Lith and forward Aneesah Morrow.

While neither was named a Preseason All-American by the Associated Press like Angel Reese, both were named to the AP’s Preseason Honorable Mention list on Tuesday.

Van Lith was the top transfer in the country after earning First Team All-ACC and All-American Honorable Mention honors with Louisville last season. Morrow comes from DePaul, where she had 53 double-doubles in 66 career games and was named the national Freshman of the Year in 2021-22.

With another absolutely stacked roster in Baton Rouge, this could be the start of a dynasty for Mulkey.
