LSU women's basketball takes down Texas Southern as Angel Reese remains away from team

BATON ROUGE — Still without star forward Angel Reese, No. 7 LSU women's basketball had no trouble with Texas Southern on Monday night.

The Tigers turned disrupting defense into transition offense as they raced past the visiting Tigers, 106-47, inside Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

LSU (5-1) had 48 points off a whopping 35 Texas Southern turnovers, a season-high for Kim Mulkey's defense.

Reese was not in attendance at Southeastern Louisiana Friday night and Kim Mulkey didn't give a reason as to why.




"Angel was not in uniform. She is a part of this basketball team," she said. "We hope she's back with the team soon. I'm not going to answer any more than that."

In the third quarter, Johnson hesitated in the corner then drove baseline, finding Williams on the other corner. The defender crashed, Williams whipped the ball over to Van Lith for a wide open 3-point shot.

LSU had numerous sequences where players made the extra pass, leading to 19 team assists, a stat Mulkey cares plenty about. Van Lith led the way with five assists.
