BATON ROUGE – Listed by the NCAA as one of the top transfers in the portal, Aneesah Morrow wanted to come to the SEC and compete. More than anything, the LSU small forward wanted her shot at winning it all, something that was unlikely to occur at DePaul.

“I want to win a national championship. The individual goals, been there, done that.”

This was Morrow’s response after asking what’s her goal by the end of her senior year. After transferring from DePaul, where she left a legacy in only two seasons with the Blue Demons. National Freshman of the year, and no.4 on the list for leading scorers in the nation. 

Coming in at no.5 on the leading scorers list last season was her now teammate, Angel Reese. We asked Morrow what it’s like being on the same team as Reese, she says it’s fun.

“We get to challenge one another, and work hard. It all starts in practice.”

It’s known that Reese was a big part of getting Morrow to commit to LSU. Having her on the squad has shown its perks, with Morrow averaging nearly 17 points and 10 rebounds per game. 

LSU had a send off for the team as they prepared to head to Greenville, SC for the SEC Tournament. During that send off the crowd was treated to Q & A with some of the team. One thing that was mentioned by Morrow in part, “A lot of people said I couldn’t come to the SEC and play well.”  SEC superlatives were handed out this week, and Morrow came away with First All SEC Team honors. 

“It’s Me vs me. That’s my mind set.” I can control what I can control”

Morrow says she doesn’t overthink the next appointment, instead she focuses on herself. Getting better each game, blocking out the noise and just hooping. It’s not only her first year in a new conference, but it’ll also be her first year at the big dance.

The road to Cleveland starts this weekend for the LSU Tigers. Friday they’ll match up against the Auburn Tigers for the third time this season. Their first matchup back in January was as competitive as they come. LSU lost by 5, but in the rematch they won by 5. 

The Tiger on Tiger battle has been one to look forward to this season. Morrow was held to just 5 points in the win against Auburn, her lowest points of the season. Anyone who follows the game knows that this next game could be personal for her. 

“Trying to keep a level head is the best thing I can do in games”

This LSU team has been given the  nickname “The Show.” Known for their crafty passes, larger than life personalities and fans always look forward to the wardrobe of Kim Mulkey. The entire country is on watch to see the lights, cameras but most importantly the action from Aneesah Morrow and her teammates.
