LSU women’s basketball stars takeover Raising Cane’s

BATON ROUGE — “Chicken, chicken chicken … what combo you pickin'”?

It’s not something you typically hear from Kim Mulkey and her LSU women’s basketball team, but it’s exactly what you got if you stopped by the original Raising Cane’s on Highland Rd. Wednesday.

Fresh off their historic NCAA women’s basketball championship, Mulkey and some of her star players traded in their basketball jerseys for Raising Cane’s aprons to serve up the famous chicken tenders, fries, toast and coleslaw.

“Bayou Barbie” Angel Reese, Alexis Morris and Flau’Jae Johnson were hired on as temporary crew members. Raising cane’s founder and LSU alum Todd Graves was also there to join in on the fun.

The LSU women’s basketball players worked the drive-thru and counter to take orders and interact with jubilant fans. The team also took some time to chow down on some chicken tenders.

Today’s lunch-time takeover comes hours before Baton Rouge throws Mulkey and her team a championship parade. That parade kicks off Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. before weaving through LSU’s campus and arriving at the PMAC for a celebration at 7 p.m.

Unfiltered with Kiran will be live streaming the parade as it rolls through campus.
