The LSU women’s basketball team, one of the best comeback stories in women’s college basketball this season, begins its quest for an NCAA title tonight.
The LSU Tigers (20-11, 8-8 SEC) enter the NCAA women’s basketball tournament as the No. 8 seed in the Oklahoma City Region, poised to face No. 9 California (19-13, 6-12 PAC-12). One year removed from one of the worst finishes in school history, LSU bounced back this year thanks in large part to the leadership of SEC Defensive Player of the Year Raigyne Moncrief, who led the conference in steals.
