LSU women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey has long been a notable figure for her distinctive fashion choices on the sideline, a trend that began during her tenure at Baylor, characterized by colorful and flashy outfits.
During a recent game against Missouri, the Tigers embraced the fun side of Mulkey’s fashion sense by hosting a “Dress Like Kim Mulkey” night. Fans enthusiastically participated, showcasing shiny suit jackets and outfits adorned with various gems and patches in homage to Mulkey’s signature style.
Mulkey took a moment to engage with fans who had dressed in her likeness, expressing amusement at their dedication and the accuracy of their outfits. On the court, LSU secured a convincing 20-point victory against their SEC opponents. Angel Reese, Flau’Jae Johnson, and Aneesah Morrow each contributed over 20 points, marking a successful start to the Tigers’ conference games.
With a 14-1 record, LSU, the defending national champions, has rebounded impressively since losing their season opener against Colorado. As they enter conference play, the team seems to be hitting its stride, and anticipation is building for their upcoming matchup against No. 1 South Carolina later this month.
This event highlights the ongoing trend of college basketball coaches becoming iconic figures in the sport.
