Bayou Brew 4/2: Elite Season

Today, we're recapping women's basketball, softball hosts ULM, and more!

Good morning! The stars were showing support for LSU during last night’s Elite Eight game! Rapper NLE Choppa was there to support, plus stars like Tim McGraw, Ben McDonald, and Ryan Clark showed love on social media.

What else did we pour into today’s Brew?

🏀 Women’s basketball falls in the Elite Eight
🥎 Softball hosts ULM
🐯 And much, much more!

Lagniappe. The stars aligned for LSU Gymnastics as they secured their fifth SEC Championship, 5 years after securing their most recent SEC title in the same venue, in New Orleans, LA on March 23, 2024.


🔼 Elite Season. LSU’s women’s basketball season came to an end in the Elite Eight last night as the Tigers fell to No. 2 Iowa, 94-87. The 2023 National Championship rematch lived up to the hype, finishing as one of the highest scoring games of this year’s tournament. Flau’jae Johnson led the Tigers again with 23 points, she scored 20 or more points in her last three games. Angel Reese and Aneesah Morrow were double-double forces, Angel had 17 points and 20 boards while Aneesah had 14 points and 14 rebounds. The Tigers put up a fight all game long in front of a show-stopping crowd.

🔼 Midweek Swings. LSU softball gets a break from SEC play tonight as they host ULM at 6 pm. The Tigers got back in the swing of things with a series sweep of No. 11 Texas A&M over the weekend and ride a five-game winning streak. LSU has never lost to ULM, boasting a 15-0 record. Tonight’s game will stream on SEC Network+ and air on the LSU Sports Radio Network.

🔼 Geaux Low. Women’s golfer Edit Hertzman is sitting in fourth-place as an individual at the ULM Invitational. The sophomore shot 3-under through 36 holes yesterday. She was one of just four players to shoot under par in both of the first two rounds. Elsa Svensson and Jordan Fischer are also participating in the ULM Invitational. They’ll continue play today with the final round, beginning at 8:30 am.

🔼 Running Wild. The second edition of the USTFCCCA Outdoor rankings are here and the women’s team landed at the top! LSU women secured the No. 1 spot for the second-straight week, while the men came in at No. 3. The Tigers have 23 top-10 marks nationally, led by Brianna Lyston at No. 1 in the 100m. Claudio Romero ranks No. 2 in the discus throw, and several Tigers hold No. 3 positions.

🔼 Solid Swimming. Two Tigers brought home three All-American honors at the 2024 NCAA Swim & Dive Championships! Carson Paul finished the meet with two All-American honors after placing sixth on platform and 12th in the three-meter dive. Freshman Jere Hribar finished 10th-place in the 100-yard freestyle consolation final to earn his honor. The men’s 800-yard freestyle relay and 400-yard medley relay crews broke school records with their times. That wraps up this season, they’ll be back in action in the fall!
