New LSU women’s basketball players show off skills
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - It might only be mid-July but if you feel like getting excited about LSU women’s basketball, go right head.
Some of the new players and weapons second-year head coach and Naismith Hall of Famer Kim Mulkey will be putting on the PMAC floor this season showed off some of their skills.
True freshman guard Flaujae Johnson is a pure shooter who was burning up the nets on Wednesday, July 13. The Atlanta native and talented rapper is described as a player who gives 100%, 100% of the time. She recently played in the Jordan Brand Classic and earned MVP honors with 27 points in the game.
And then, there’s junior forward and Maryland transfer Angel Reese. She is ranked the nation’s top player in the transfer portal after earning All-American honors her sophomore season. Reese averaged nearly 18 points and 11 rebounds per game last season for a Terrapins team that reached the sweet 16.
There are plenty of other fresh and very talented faces joining Mulkey for her second year with the Tigers.
Ladazhia Williams is a 6-foot-4 forward and graduate transfer from Missouri. She was also looking strong while cameras captured the action of practice. Williams scored more than 12 points, grabbed more than four rebounds, and had 1.2 blocks per game for Missouri last season.
Meanwhile, Jasmine Carson is a guard and graduate transfer from West Virginia. She averaged nearly 10 points per game and more than three rebounds per contest as a sophomore and is hoping to return to that form or better this season.
Fifth-year senior Alexis Morris, who is returning from a late-season knee injury, seems to like her new friends.
