Kim Mulkey has been forever enshrined in Louisiana Tech history, with the LSU women’s basketball head coach receiving her own statue at her alma mater on Wednesday night.

Mulkey starred as a player for the Lady Techsters from 1980-84, helping the team to an NCAA championship in 1982. Following her playing career, Mulkey served an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech for 15 seasons, including the 1988 NCAA championship season led by WNBA star Teresa Weatherspoon.

Since leaving the university, Mulkey has won three national championships as a head coach at Baylor and now LSU. The Hall of Famer led the Tigers to their first NCAA championship earlier this year in just her second season at the helm.

“Incredible night with even better people, reminiscing on memories that will last a lifetime,” Mulkey wrote on social media after the unveiling of her statue, which features her playing basketball.

She also congratulated the other honorees — Weatherspoon, Karl Malone, Terry Bradshaw, Willie Roaf and the late Fred Dean. The statues are on display outside of Joe Aillet Stadium, the home of the Louisiana Tech football team.

Under the 61-year-old Mulkey, LSU is considered a favorite to repeat as NCAA champions in 2023-24 after returning Final Four Most Outstanding Player Angel Reese and adding star transfers Hailey Van Lith (Louisville) and Aneesah Morrow (DePaul).
