You’ll Soon Be Able to Purchase an LSU Women’s Basketball National Championship License Plate
On Thursday, August 3rd, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards signed a bill to create a new license plate honoring the 2023 LSU women's basketball team's national championship.
The bill signing took place yesterday inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on LSU's campus.
"It's a great time at LSU. We also won the baseball national championship," said Edwards after congratulating head coach Kim Mulkey and her team.
In Coach Mulkey's second season at the helm of the program, the Tigers notched their first-ever women's basketball NCAA championship.
The Tigers went 34-2 and defeated Iowa 102-85 in the national championship, setting a national championship game for most points scored.
Additionally, just under 10 million television viewers tuned in for the game.
"This is the coolest thing," said Mulkey at the bill signing. “Won four national championships and to have the opportunity to have a license plate recognizing that championship. I don’t know who will get license plate number one but they will have to fight me for it.”
Mulkey went on to thank the lawmakers for passing the bill and later jokingly said she likes it because "it's a type of bill I don't have to pay."
The license plates aren't available for purchase just yet. More information on how to purchase the 2023 LSU National Championship late will be released at a later date, according to LSU Athletics.
