That was a VERY nice win by the ladies today. They came out to take care of business from the opening tip and, for the most part, never let up. They were led by DaShawn Harden in the first half (she finished with 28 pts) and Ballard in the second half (20 pts). It was clear that those two were deter...

Harden has cooled off a little but, it now appears Danielle Ballard is beginning to assert herself.
| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU Lady Tigers 80, TAMU 63 Final! - lsualum96 on 3/1/15 at 2:13 pm|
The ladies looked REALLY good in that first half. DaShawn Harden is playing like a woman in her final home game with 22 pts. If we can continue to pressure the ball defensively like we have been, we can pull this game out.................and yes, possibly get the #4 seed...

Well, the Lady Tigers......who were 9-4 last week and almost assured an NCAA tournament bid..........face a must-win situation today. After having lost two in a row and dropping their conference record to 9-6 they can ill afford to lose this game today. Ten wins in conference would pretty much assur...

The biggest turnaround for this team has been their defense as well as getting more people involved in the scoring. Moncrief and Ballard got theirs but there was also solid contribution from Harden, Bethel and Hill. All three of these next games are winnable. But none of them are a gimme. Winning tw...

Well, clearly you're one of those "78 people" since you took the time to actually post on a thread about the team. :lol:
So, this is what it's come to as a fan base? Just like football, we can only complain about the losses but, we ignore the wins...........or winning streaks? Wow.........what a...

Well, it wasn't pretty but we can take some positives away from losing to the #1 team in the SEC on their home floor. The first half was a complete failure. However, I LOVE the way the ladies competed in the second half. We actually "won" the second half 42-38. We don't have the interior to deal wit...

Who would've thunk, a month ago we'd be where we are. Credit to Nikki Caldwell and her staff. We've already got more wins than our senior heavy team last season. The future looks bright the rest of the way!

I just laugh because his hate for Coach Caldwell is so obvious...................yet he states that when the team wins his posts are positive. Unfortunately, it's painfully obvious to us that he only shows up if the team loses. So, I guess........even though we've won 4 of our last 5 and 5 of our la...

Can't add much more to what's already been said. I love how this team is developing. I love how other players other than Moncrief, Ballard, and Harden are starting to contribute. Nikki..............whom some said needed to be fired two weeks ago................has done an excellent job.
And I con...

At the time of the hire, Staley wasn't a better coaching prospect than Caldwell. Also, what makes you certain Dawn would've left what she was already building in Columbia, to come to Baton Rouge? LSU did well in hiring Caldwell. The only thing she needs to do at this point is add an assistant who's ...

The Lady Tigers continued their hot play of late, with a 74-65 victory over Mizzou last night. The ladies built a twenty point lead only to see that lead evaporate to a one point deficit late in the second half. However, what was good was seeing the ladies dig deep and still pull out the win. This t...

I love the way that Rhodes appears to be progressing. Deemer is a freshman and was still apprehensive on the court at times. Last night was the first game I remember seeing her actually be aggressive aside from just looking for the 3 pt shot. I also like how Hill's game is evolving. She's a better o...

I think she signed Youngblood for two reasons...............
1. She was a Louisiana kid and she wanted to show that she's willing to recruit in-state talent. She also got Coco Baker in that class too..................both of whom have subsequently been kicked off the team.
2. We needed a post ...

There's definitely lots of potential in the style of play that we are able to play now. Last year, as much as I loved our seniors, they were all challenged athletically (McKinney, Plaisance, Kenney). So, even though we were big........and that presented problems for teams going against our offense.....
