The LSU women's basketball team shows no signs of slowing down as they play out the rest of the regular season. Proof was in their lopsided win over Texas A&M on Monday.

After a week off, the LSU women's basketball team took the floor and destroyed Texas A&M in College Station. Kim Mulkey's squad overcame a few clumsy opening possessions and put up an impressive offensive performance in its 81-58 win.

Aneesah Morrow was fantastic on the night, hitting 11-of-17 field goals and a trio of three-point attempts for 25 points. The junior guard also led the Tigers on the defensive end of the court with 15 rebounds.

Monday was also the biggest game of the season for Flau'jae Johnson, who dominated the first half. The sophomore guard converted 7-of-11 field goals and 3-of-4 three-pointers for 20 points. Johnson was also perfect from the free-throw line and contributed six assists.

Texas A&M (17-8; 5-7 in SEC play) did not generate much offense in the first half. The Aggies were so bad that LSU jumped to a 15-4 lead in six minutes. Mulkey's team increased their lead to 36-14 at halftime. Texas A&M went on a few formidable runs in the third quarter, but the Tigers' offense remained relentless.

Angel Reese didn't have her best night statistically, shooting just 5-of-10 for 13 points and snagging ten rebounds. However, the superstar forward was tough on defense, including four steals, and enjoyed watching her teammates put up career nights.

Mulkey also took advantage of LSU's sizable leads to give her best player extra rest during the game.

Elsewhere, Last-Tear Poa contributed four points and three assists while coming off the bench. Mulkey considered inserting the junior guard into the starting five following her performance against Alabama. Instead, the LSU women's basketball head coach opted to continue augmenting her starters, with Poa leading the Tigers' reserve players with 19 minutes against Texas A&M.

LSU moved to 22-4 (9-3 in SEC play) on the season. They remain gridlocked into the No. 13 spot of the AP Top 25, but at this point, it doesn't matter. Regardless of rankings, the Tigers must remain focused on building momentum ahead of the SEC tournament.
