BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The LSU women’s basketball team is back in the Associated Press Top 25 Women’s Basketball Poll for the first time since the end of the 2017-18 season. The Lady Tigers are currently ranked No. 25.

The Lady Tigers are now 7-1 after winning six straight. This is the first time LSU has started its season 7-1 since the 2013-14 season when the Lady Tigers were ranked in the top 15 and advanced as far as the NCAA Sweet 16.

LSU picked up a big 58-56 win Friday night against then-No. 15 Michigan State and went on to beat Memphis, 89-58, on Saturday to win the Bimini Division of the Junkanoo Jam. Since the lone loss on the season to now-No. 8 Florida State, LSU has beaten Little Rock, Rutgers, and Michigan State, which were all 2019 NCAA Tournament teams.

LSU returns to the PMAC early Tuesday, December 3 at 11 a.m. to take on Nicholls State.
