Kim Mulkey Makes Inappropriate Comment Following LSU vs. South Carolina Brawl

Kim Mulkey is known for being a highly controversial sports coach, so it’s not shocking that she made a rather insensitive comment after LSU’s defeat to South Carolina in the SEC Tournament Championship on Sunday.

The highly anticipated SEC showdown between the two powerhouse teams concluded in a rather unpleasant manner. In the final moments of the fourth quarter, Flau’jae Johnson made contact with a South Carolina player, resulting in a forceful shove from USC’s Kamilla Cardoso, causing Johnson to tumble to the ground. Pandemonium ensued, and it took the referees approximately 20 minutes to restore order and resolve the situation.

After the game, Mulkey addressed the fight and took a different approach instead of apologizing on behalf of her team.

According to Mulkey, 61, she expressed her preference for Cardoso to have shoved LSU’s Angel Reese instead of Johnson. Mulkey believes that Reese, who is five inches taller than Johnson, would have made for a more balanced altercation.

Baylor women’s basketball coach, Kim Mulkey, expressed her disapproval of the recent brawl and stated, “No one wants to see that ugliness.” However, she did express her wish that the player involved in the incident, Angel Reese, had directed her aggression towards someone of her own size, saying, “You’re 6’8. Don’t push somebody that little. That was uncalled for in my opinion.”

While her point is valid, it is important to remember that promoting violence is never necessary.

Cardoso, on the other hand, has expressed her remorse for the actions that precipitated the altercation on Sunday.

“I would like to extend my sincerest apologies for my actions during today’s game. My behavior was not representative of who I am as a person or the South Carolina program, and I deeply regret any discomfort or inconvenience it may have caused. I take full responsibility for my actions and assure you that I am committed to conducting myself with the utmost respect and sportsmanship in the future,” Cardoso said on social media .

As selection Sunday on Mar. 17 approaches, Mulkey and the Tigers find themselves with a lot on their minds.
