ATHENS, Ga. — All five starters reached double figures for No. 9 LSU (25-4, 12-3 SEC) on Thursday night as the Tigers ran away from Georgia (12-16, 3-12 SEC), 80-54. The crowd of 7,406 inside Stegeman Coliseum was the largest for a women’s basketball game at Georgia since 2012.

With the win on Thursday night, LSU locked the No. 2 seed in the SEC for the third year in a row and the Tigers will play next Friday in Greenville, South Carolina at 5 p.m. CT.

Angel Reese finished the night with a double-double after scoring 17 points and hauling in 15 rebounds. She now has 19 double-doubles on the season. Aneesah Morrow recorded her 17th double-double with 16 points and 10 boards. Morrow added a new season high of 5 assists.

“I never take that for granted,” Coach Kim Mulkey said of having two players who consistently get double-doubles. “I always tell our coaches, we see those kids everyday and we see what they do in games– we can’t take it for granted. What they do in getting double-doubles, Angel and Morrow, that doesn’t just happen. Those rebounds don’t just fall in their lap. Those points don’t just happen, They work in there.”
