LSU (17-2, 5-1) made its jump into the Top 10 of the Women’s Basketball USA Today Coaches Poll on Tuesday, moving up four spots to No. 10 in the latest poll.

The Tigers continue to climb the polls and moved up one spot to No. 11 in Monday’s AP Poll. The last time LSU was ranked inside the Top 10 was during the 2009-10 season where the Tigers were ranked as high as No. 5 in the country.

The first of LSU’s victories last week came Thursday in an overtime thriller against Missouri where Khayla Pointer hit a layup with 5.7 seconds left and Alexis Morris blocked Missouri’s last second shot attempt to tie to secure the win. LSU folllowed that up Sunday with an 82-64 win over Vanderbilt.

LSU is idle on Thursday and will take to floor again on Sunday in Gainesville against Florida at 1 p.m. CT.
