The LSU Tigers women’s basketball team scored a season-high in points on Wednesday night. The No.22 ranked Tigers beat Alcorn State 100-36 to improve to 8-1 on the season.
Khayla Pointer led LSU; she scored 19 points, shooting 7-10 from the field. In addition, Pointer hit 2-4 three-point shots while also grabbing ten rebounds. Alexis Morris added on 7-9 shooting from the field. All 13 LSU players scored in the game on Wednesday night.
LSU shot 61.3% from the field and 37.5% from beyond the arc. They also won the rebounding battle 46-21. Alcorn State turned the ball over 26 times in the game.
Maya Claytor led Alcorn State in scoring with 13 points. However, this game was over quickly; Alcorn State only scored double-digit points in one of the four quarters.
The Tigers are playing good basketball, looking much improved, but let’s see what happens when conference play starts and games get a little more challenging down the road.
LSU was supposed to play the University of New Orleans Saturday, but the game was canceled due to health and safety protocols. So instead, the Tigers will play Bradley at noon CT Saturday at the Pete Maravich Center in Baton Rouge. Bradley is 3-4, and LSU will look to improve to 9-1 on the season with a win Saturday.
