Hailey Van Lith Leads LSU to Victory Over Tennessee with Season-High Performance

Hailey Van Lith displayed her skill on the court in a much-anticipated matchup inside the Food City Center, helping the No. 13 LSU Tigers defeat the Tennessee Volunteers 75-60. 15,281 ardent fans attended the game in historic numbers, demonstrating the intensity of the event.

Hailey Van Lith’s excellent performance resulted in a season-high 26 points, a stunning feat given her recent scoring average. The transfer player’s participation was critical, especially in the fourth quarter, when her 12 points supplied much-needed momentum for the Tigers.

Mikaylah Williams also made a substantial contribution, scoring 15 points on 7-18 from the field. Her steady scoring throughout the season has been critical to LSU’s success, as evidenced by her 14 games of 15 or more points.

Angel Reese achieved another milestone in her successful career by topping 2,000 career points, cementing her status as a standout performer. Reese’s all-around performance of 11 points and 16 rebounds, including her 18th double-double of the season, demonstrated her versatility and effectiveness on the floor.

Aneesah Morrow’s near-double-double (8 points, 13 rebounds) highlighted the Tigers’ rebounding domination, with Reese and Morrow accounting for 29 of LSU’s 57 rebounds.

Rickea Jackson led the Lady Vols with 16 points, while Tamari Key had 10 and Tess Darby had 9. Tennessee, on the other hand, struggled from beyond the arc, hitting only 3-18 from three points and 31.1% overall.

The Tigers’ victory prepares them for their upcoming game at Georgia, followed by a home game versus Kentucky on Senior Day. With their sights set on more success, LSU hopes to sustain their momentum and consolidate their standing in the rankings.
