The No. 22 LSU women’s basketball team hosts Alcorn State at 6 p.m. Wednesday in the PMAC as the Tigers look for their seventh consecutive win.

“I think confidence comes from success,” LSU women’s coach Kim Mulkey said. “Confidence comes from knowledge. Every time we can get on that floor, we become a little more confident.”

The Tigers (7-1), winners of six straight, will be back on the floor Wednesday in a game that will be televised on the SEC Network. The LSU Sports Radio Network 107.3 FM will also broadcast the game with Patrick Wright on the call.

LSU is in the AP poll for the second consecutive week and have not lost since the second game of the season against Florida Gulf Coast. The Tigers are coming off a 96-55 win over Texas Southern on Sunday in which they set new season highs in total points, shooting percentage (.621), assists (26), steals (13) and blocks (7). All 13 players, led by center Faustine Aifuwa’s 14 points, that saw action in the game scored at least two points.

Alcorn State (1-7) picked up its first win of the season on Monday over Tugaloo College. The Lady Braves average 50.4 points through eight games and do not have a player who averages double-digit points. Diamond Hall leads Alcorn State with 7.7 points per game and Akyriale Ford leads the team with 3.6 rebounds per game.

“I don’t care about records,” Mulkey said. “I care about what I see on film. We worked on everything potentially we could see from them.”
