LSU Women’s Basketball shocked the world by winning a national title last season. Now, all signs point toward Kim Mulkey building a dynasty in Baton Rouge.
Kim Mulkey is unsatisfied with winning one Women’s NCAA Championship in Baton Rouge. Indeed, the LSU Women’s Basketball head coach continues making moves that signal a new dynasty in the sport.
Mulkey’s latest move toward women’s college basketball supremacy is luring the nation’s top 2025 recruit to Baton Rouge for a visit.
We now know that Aaliyah Chavez will be on the LSU campus this weekend.
Chavez is a 5-foot-9 point guard from Monterey High School (Lubbock, TX) who averaged 30 points per game as a sophomore, including shooting 47% from three-point range. Moreover, the dynamic scorer posted 27 points as a freshman.
Adding Aaliyah Chavez to her 2025 class would be a massive win for Mulkey in restocking talent after much of her current championship-winning core departs the program.
Chavez is considering LSU along with a list of 10 schools, including USC, Arizona, UCLA, Texas, and Tennessee.
LSU Women’s Basketball recently welcomed the nation’s top prospect for 2024 to Death Valley. Forward Sarah Strong officially visited Baton Rouge in September alongside fellow recruit Kate Koval.
All indications are that Mulkey has prioritized Strong, including home visits with the Grace Christian High School (Fuquay-Varina, NC) prospect. Strong is also weighing offers from Oregon, Louisville, and UConn, among other top women’s college basketball programs.
Koval committed to Notre Dame not long after she visited with LSU.
Mulkey and LSU Women’s Basketball also remain hot on the recruiting trail for Joyce Edwards’ commitment. The nation’s No. 2 prospect for 2024 visited Death Valley during LSU Football’s game against Arkansas.
Not long ago, it seemed impossible that LSU would host the best women’s basketball recruits for official visits. Indeed, Kim Mulkey shifted the paradigm by coming home to coach and bringing her championship pedigree with her.
The Tigers head coach brought Baton Rouge their first women’s college basketball national championship in two seasons. She also locked down one of the nation’s top recruiting classes for 2023. Moreover, Mulkey added the top two transfer players ahead of the 2023-24 season.
Things are just getting started for LSU Women’s Basketball.
