LSU Walks Off the Floor Before National Anthem, Iowa Stands and Wins

LSU’s girls’s basketball group walked off the flooring earlier than the nationwide anthem was performed  Monday night time of their Elite Eight matchup in opposition to rival Iowa.

Iowa’s gamers stood respectfully for the anthem.

A Baton Rouge reporter stated LSU isn’t on the courtroom for the anthem.

After the recreation, LSU coach Kim Mulkey stated her group’s resolution to go away the flooring was not “intentional” and simply a part of her group’s “routine.” She added that she is unaware of when the anthem is performed.

In case you have been questioning, LSU misplaced. The Lady Hawkeyes beat the defending nationwide champion Lady Tigers, 94-87. Iowa’s Caitlin Clark drained 9 3-pointers on her strategy to a 41-12-7 stat line.
