BATON ROUGE, LA - On Sunday afternoon the first statue of a female athlete was unveiled on the campus of LSU on the backside of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
Seimone Augustus was honored by LSU with a beautiful statue in a ceremony before the Lady Tigers' game against Auburn in front of a tremendous crowd.
Augustus, a two time All-American played at LSU from 2002-2006, leading the Lady Tigers to
three straight Final Four appearances.
She averaged 19.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and two assist per game during her college career.
On January 9th, 2010, LSU retired her #33 jersey number as she became the first female athlete in school history to receive that honor.
In 2006 the Minnesota Lynx drafted Augustus with the No. 1 overall pick in the WNBA Draft, and she would go on to win Rookie of the Year. She would also win four WNBA Championships with Minnesota in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017.
She is currently an assistant coach in the WNBA for the Los Angeles Sparks.
Congratulations Seimone for an incredible college and WNBA career. You are truly a Tiger Legend.
