Lady Tigers move to 3rd in both polls

LSU's women's basketball team is ranked No. 3 in both the Associated Press and the USA Today/ESPN/WBCA polls this week after splitting the two games last week.

LSU (23-2, 11-1 SEC) fell at Florida on Thursday night, 79-78, in overtime and rebounded to defeat Arkansas at home on Sunday, 64-42.

The Lady Tigers still hold a one-game lead in Southeastern Conference over Tennessee and can clinch at least a share of a second straight league title with one more win in the two remaining games.

Duke, with 39 first-place votes and 1119 points, remained No. 1 in the AP poll, while LSU dropped behind North Carolina to third. The Lady Tigers received 992 points. Maryland remained No. 4 followed by Tennessee.

The Lady Tigers remained third in the coaches' poll with 679 points. Duke and North Carolina stayed put in the top two spots, while the rest of the top nine remained the same.

The Lady Tigers visit Alabama on Thursday at 7 p.m. CST before hosting Mississippi State on Sunday at 2 p.m. CST in the final home game of seniors' Seimone Augustus, Scholanda Hoston and Florence Williams' careers.
