The No. 11 LSU Women’s Basketball team took over sole possession of second place in SEC going into the final week of the season, defeating No. 17 Florida, 66-61, Sunday in front of 13,620 fans in the PMAC – the fourth largest crowd in LSU Women’s Basketball History.

The win is the 5th for Kim Mulkey this season against AP Top 25 teams.

The trio of Morris, Aifuwa and Newby combined for 43 of LSU's 66 points. 

LSU’s game leader was Morris with 20 points, five rebounds, three assists, and one rebound.
