After winning the school’s first national championship, third-year LSU coach Kim Mulkey will try and lead the Tigers to their first Southeastern Conference under her direction when league play begins for the 2023-24 season on Jan. 4.

Mulkey has directed the Tigers to consecutive SEC runners-up finishes behind South Carolina in her first two seasons and will take aim at an elusive SEC title, beginning with a home game with Missouri, the league office released Wednesday. The team’s SEC television schedule will be announced at a later date.

LSU (34-2, 15-1) embarks on a 16-game conference schedule that includes eight home and eight away games, including three home-and-home series against Texas A&M, Auburn and Alabama. They combined to go 16-31 a year ago with Alabama finishing in a tie for fifth, while Auburn was 11th and A&M was 14th.  

Mulkey is scheduled to return three players who started in the Final Four led by All-America forward Angel Reese and SEC Freshman of the Year Flau’jae Johnson. She also signed the nation’s top two players from the transfer portal – Hailey Van Lith of Louisville and Aneesah Morrow of DePaul – along with the nation’s top incoming freshman class topped by the nation’s No. 1 rated player in Mikaylah Williams of Bossier City.

The Tigers host two exhibition games on Oct. 26 against East Texas Baptist and Nov. 1 with Loyola-New Orleans. They officially tip off the regular season Nov. 6 in the Naismith Hall of Fame Series against Colorado at 6:30 pm. At T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The first month of conference play has LSU hosting Missouri, A&M (Jan. 11), Arkansas (Jan. 21) and South Carolina (Jan. 25) with road trips to Ole Miss (Jan. 7), Auburn (Jan. 14), Alabama (Jan. 18) and Mississippi State (Jan. 29).

LSU will also host Florida (Feb. 4), Alabama (Feb. 11) and Auburn (Feb. 22) before heading to Tennessee (Feb. 25) and Georgia (Feb. 29).

The Tigers conclude the regular season at home against Kentucky (March 3) and head to the SEC Tournament March 6-10 in Greenville, South Carolina.
