The LSU Tigers Women's Basketball team seems to be re-loading for the 2024-25 season as Coach Kim Mulkey has announced the addition of three guards to the program via the transfer portal.

The Tigers' perimeter depth is getting some help with the three newest Tigers -- Shayeann Day-Wilson (Mississippi State), Kailyn Gilbert (Arizona), and Mjracle Sheppard (Miami).

The trio will join previously announced transfer Jersey Wolfenbarger (Arkansas) and Jada Richard (Lafayette Christian Academy), Louisiana's high school player of the year, as the five new additions to the upcoming season's roster.

“We could not be more excited to add Shayeann, Kailyn, and Mjracle to the LSU family,” Coach Kim Mulkey said. “The three of them will add a combination of experience and depth on the perimeter for us and will bolster our roster to continue to compete at an elite level.”

Coach Mulkey shared her excitement about the additions on social media.
