Welcome home the National Championship winning LSU Lady Tigers Monday

BATON ROUGE — Baton Rouge is getting ready for another Purple and Gold celebration.

After an historic win against Iowa, the LSU Women’s Basketball are returning home national champions, and you can join in on the celebration.

A Champions Welcome

The Tigers will depart Dallas on Monday at approximately 10 a.m. aboard a charter flight to Baton Rouge, where there will be a welcome home gathering at the Maravich Center at approximately noon.
