Watch: LSU women douse Kim Mulkey in celebration after punching Sweet Sixteen ticket


Kim Mulkey has won enough NCAA Tournament games to know what she's walking into as she hits the locker room after a big win.

But even by those standards, as the LSU women put in on social media, it was "lit" in there after the Tigers routed Michigan 66-42 to advance to the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 2014.

As Mulkey walked into greet her team postgame at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, she was greeted by a wall of screaming players and a wall of water from here celebrating players.

Mulkey covered her face as her polka dot jacket was drenched, then appeared to hit a griddy -- a dance originally credited to former LSU star Justin Jefferson -- before hugging star forward Angel Reese and the rest of her team.

Mulkey and her Tigers now head to Greenville to face the 2 seed Utah, which took down Princeton 63-56. The next round of the women's NCAA Tournament will take place on Friday, March 24 and Saturday, March 25. The date and time for LSU-Utah is still yet to be announced, with the second half of the Round of 32 games set to be played on Monday. Should LSU win one more game, it will be the furthest they'd gone in any NCAA Tournament since their last Final Four visit in 2008.
