BATON ROUGE, La. (103.3 The GOAT) - It's been just about a year since the LSU women's basketball team won the National Championship, and now Louisiana auto drivers can get a specially designed license plate commemorating the occasion.

The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) announced on Thursday that the plates were available through the agency's website.

“We are excited to offer this specialty plate as that team truly represents the grit and winning spirit of the great citizens of Louisiana,” OMV Commissioner Dan Casey stated. Casey and the agency presented LSU women's coach Kim Mulkey with the first plate of its kind on Thursday morning.

“It’s awesome," Mulkey said. "It’s just a reminder every day when you walk to your car of what we did. It’s also a reminder of how much our program is valued."

National Champs

Mulkey and her team won the 2023 NCAA National Championship game over Iowa, 102-85.

As LSU Athletics pointed out at the time, it was the "fourth championship in as many title game appearances in Mulkey’s coaching career (previous wins at Baylor in 2005, 2012 and 2019), as she became the first women’s basketball coach to win NCAA championships at multiple schools."

On the way there, LSU (34-2), who was the No. 3 seed in their region, defeated No. 1-seed Virginia Tech, 79-72. They later defeated No. 14 Hawai’i and No. 6 Michigan at the Maravich Center, and took out No. 2-seeded Utah and No. 9-seeded Miami to advance to the National Championship game.
