Since losing the season-opener against a ranked opponent in Colorado, LSU’s No. 7-ranked women’s basketball team has reeled off four wins in a row, and it will look to make that five as it hosts Texas Southern at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
TSU (1-2) is still looking for its first win against a Division I opponent. It beat North American but suffered big losses against New Mexico and Old Dominion. Now, it faces its toughest test by far in the young season as it travels to play a top-10 team.
Texas Southern is led by first-year coach Vernette Skeete, and the Tigers are coming off a season in which they finished just 2-27.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Monday night’s game in which LSU may be without star forward Angel Reese once again after she missed Friday’s game against Southeastern Louisiana for undisclosed reasons.

LSU continues to beat up on teams it’s much better than before the non-conference slate heats up again shortly, and this Texas Southern team has suffered double-digit losses to a pair of mid-majors. LSU should be able to make this one pretty lopsided, with or without Reese.
Prediction: LSU 95, Texas Southern 50
