Kim Mulkey fashion stuns again during LSU's Sweet 16 win: 'I'm filling the bill' for Louisiana


As the rounds have gone on, the Kim Mulkey sideline outfits have continued to get wilder and wilder.

It started with a St. Patrick's day sweater that read "Kiss me, I'm a queen" as her team throttled Hawaii. She broke out the black and white polka dots for another dominating win over Michigan.

But things went to another level during a Sweet Sixteen victory over Utah, with Mulkey's blazer featuring elaborate pink plumage from shoulder to wrist.

"Look, we're from Louisiana. We like sparkles, we like diamonds, we like Mardi Gras, we like to eat and we like to party," the coach said. "So I'm filling the bill for my home state."

LSU's head coach did make sure to point out: These were not her selections. Her stylist sends them for each game, and there will be another on the way for the Elite Eight.

Predictably, the internet had thoughts. Here are some of the top reactions.

And Mulkey will gladly keep peacocking as long as LSU continues to roll through the NCAA Tournament in year 2 of her coaching tenure. It appeared that was on the ropes after the Tigers surrendered a 10-point lead in the final minutes and Utah's Jenna Johnson -- a 75% percent free throw shooter -- went to the line with the Utes trailing 64-63 with with 4.6 seconds remaining. But the first was an airball, the second clanked off the back rim and the Tigers continued their fast ascension up the ranks of the sport.

LaDazhia Williams led the way for the Tigers with 24 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals and 2 blocks. Angel Reese also had her standard double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds, though she struggled with foul trouble throughout.

They'll next turn to a prime matchup on Sunday, facing off with 9th-seeded Miami, which upset the 2 seed Villanova earlier in the day. That game will top off at 6 p.m. on ESPN.
