Red hot LSU lands former DePaul star forward Aneesah Morrow
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU head coach Kim Mulkey and her national champion Tigers have landed another big-time transfer in former DePaul star forward Aneesah Morrow.
Morrow made the announcement via social media on Friday, May 5.
“As a true competitor, I always dreamed of playing for a top-tier program,” Morrow said. “LSU’s rich history, support and passion for all sports teams caught my attention. The atmosphere on my official visit was electric, and the fan base is incredibly passionate about their team. I was drawn to this kind of environment because I’ve always dreamed about playing for a university that had that. Furthermore, the opportunity to play in the SEC against some of the nation’s best teams.”
Morrow, one of the top players in the NCAA Transfer Portal, averaged 25.7 points per game for the Blue Falcons on 42% shooting. She scored a season-high 45 points against Northwestern. Against tougher competition, she scored 35 vs. Miami, 29 against Marquette, and 25 against UCONN.
“Aneesah is coming to LSU as one of the premier scorers and rebounders in the country over the past two seasons,” Coach Kim Mulkey said. “She has the ability to stretch the floor offensively with her range and brings an aggressive style of play that Tiger fans are going to love. We are excited to welcome Aneesah to Baton Rouge!”
In her two seasons, the 6-foot-1 forward started all 66 games, averaging 23.8 points, 13 rebounds, and 1.7 assists per game while shooting 46% from the field.
