How to watch No. 9 LSU women’s basketball travel to face Mississippi State on Monday night

Coming off a disappointing home loss to No. 1 South Carolina on Thursday night in which the Tigers had their opportunities to win but couldn’t hold on, they’ll look to bounce back as they hit the road on Monday night for a contest against Mississippi State.

Coach Kim Mulkey’s team sits at 17-3 and 4-2 in SEC play, while the Bulldogs are 16-5 overall but are just 3-3 in conference games. They’ll be looking for their first-ranked win under second-year coach Sam Purcell.

LSU looked good enough to compete with the top team in the nation, but now it will look to avoid allowing one loss to turn into two. Here’s everything you need to know to watch Monday night’s game.

Injury Report

LSU is healthy entering this game.

Everything Kim Mulkey said

Per an LSU release:

“What I know is we’re relevant; we’re one of the top team in the country,” Coach Kim Mulkey said Thursday. “It was a very good game. We will get in the film room Saturday and get ready for Mississippi State. We’ll show some of the things; how did we lose the lead, where did we not help each other on the defensive end.”

Prediction

LSU just didn’t quite have enough to pull off the upset against the Gamecocks, especially with Angel Reese fouling out. This one isn’t going to be a breeze, especially on the road against one of the stronger teams in the league. But I expect the Tigers to bounce back nicely.

Prediction: LSU 75, Mississippi State 67
