Augustus entered Sunday's Southeastern Conference Tournament championship game with 126 career double figure scoring games, needing one more to tie former Southwest Missouri State star Jackie Stiles and ex-Duke standout Alana Beard's record of 127.
The Baton Rouge native collected 24 points in the loss to Tennessee for her 127th double digit scoring game of her career. Augustus will get the record if she reaches double figures in LSU's first round game in the NCAA Tournament.
The Baton Rouge native also extended her lead as the nation's leading scorer. Augustus' 23.0 points per game average this season is now 0.9 better than South Florida's Jessica Dickson who sits in second-place. Baylor Sophia Young is third with 21.7 points per outing.
Augustus has poured in 689 points in 30 games this season with the NCAA Tournament beginning next week.
LSU (27-3) will receive an al-large bid into the NCAA Tournament. The annual selection show will be on Monday at 6 p.m. CST in ESPN. At that time the fifth-ranked Lady Tigers will find out when, where and whom they will play in the opening round.
