Led by Head Coach Kim Mulkey, it took the Tigers only two years to reach the pinnacle of college basketball with their explosive offense, gritty defense and a group of characters who saw their brands explode throughout the course of the season.
Uncut. A new addition on head coach Jay Johnson's staff for the 2023-24 LSU Baseball season, Brent Haring has an extensive resume and has recruited some of the best players in the country. Follow along his day in the life during the Fall Ball slate.
