RED STICK – Angel Reese scored a career-high 32 points as the No. 11 LSU women’s basketball team (10-0) beat Lamar (4-5) Wednesday night in the PMAC, 88-42.

Reese finished with a career-high 32, breaking his previous record of 31 set in this year’s season opener against Bellarmine. The transfer from Maryland also led the team in rebounds with 15. Reese’s performance secured his tenth double-double in as many games to open the season.

Freshman, Flau’jae Johnson, finished the night with 21 points and 8 rebounds. Johnson broke the 20-point margin for the second time in his career in Wednesday night’s win. Johnson scored 27 against Northwestern St. earlier this year.

Jasmine Carson was the only other Tiger to finish in double figures as she scored a dozen and went 4-8 from behind the arc.

Kateri Poole equaled her career high in assists as she racked up 7 in total. This is the fourth time she has reached 7 in a game and the first time she has done so at LSU.

The Cardinals were led by Sabrina Dean as she finished with 15 points and went 6-15 from the field. Portia Adams led the visitors in rebounds with 8 and was second in points with 14.

LSU travels to Maui, Hawaii for the weekend as it is scheduled to play Montana State on Saturday and Oregon State on Sunday. The Tigers will then leave over the holidays before returning to Baton Rouge ahead of the conference opener against Arkansas on Dec. 29.
