How to watch No. 9 women’s basketball host Florida on Sunday

The LSU women’s basketball team enters Sunday’s home game against Florida in desperate need of a win.

The Tigers are 18-4 on the year and rank ninth in the nation, but they’re just 3-5 to start SEC play. They’ve dropped their last two games and three of their last five.

To stay in contention for a top-two seed in the NCAA tournament, it needs to end that skid sooner rather than later. That starts with a game against a Gators team that sits at 11-8 (2-5 SEC) and has struggled in league play so far.

Here’s everything you need to know as LSU looks to get back in the win column on Sunday.

How to Watch

Injury Report

No injuries to report.

Everything Kim Mulkey said

Per an LSU release:

“We just go back to work and focus on the next game and focus on us and see what happens late in the year,” Coach Kim Mulkey said.

“They’ve been in some games and lost some heartbreakers,” Coach Mulkey said on Florida. “We’ve got to defend/ We’ve got to defend in transition. We’ve got to defend in halfcourt. I’m sure they are going to do what they do which is play man-to-man, but they will press you some.”

Prediction

It’s been a rough go recently for LSU, but this is a real chance to bounce back. The Gators have not looked very good against SEC competition, and when they played South Carolina at home, they lost by 23. This one won’t be that bad, but I expect the Tigers will get back on track.

Prediction: LSU 80, Florida 65
