LSU women’s basketball knocks off No. 10 Texas A&M in College Station
Nikki Fargas and the LSU women’s basketball team picked up a massive win on the road Thursday night against tenth ranked Texas A&M.
The Tigers were led by junior guard Jailin Cherry, who posted a team-high 12 points and 6 rebounds. Senior forward Ayana Mitchell also recorded 9 points and 10 rebounds, continuing her streak of impressive play.
Texas A&M star Chennedy Carter left in the first half with a gruesome left ankle injury, and LSU took over ever since. After Carter’s injury, the Aggies went just 7-for-27 from the field and the Tigers doubled their first half point total from 19-to-38. This is LSU’s second ranked win of the season.
“We didn’t want to come into a game on the road, knowing how good A&M is in transition, and give them a lot of possessions,” coach Fargas said postgame. “When we decided box out and keep them off the offensive glass, it allowed us to get some transition baskets ourselves. This group did what we asked of them and were coachable. That’s why we prevailed.”
With the win, the Lady Tigers improve to 12-3 overall and 2-1 in SEC play. Next, LSU will host Ole Miss (7-9, 0-3) on Saturday at 2 p.m. CT at the Maravich Center.
