The LSU women’s basketball team survived its March Madness scare in the second round just a day after head coach Kim Mulkey threatened to sue the Washington Post for a “hit piece” in an unbelievable rant.

Lady Tigers star Angel Reese showed up again to bail her teammates out of trouble after they trailed 36-32 at halftime against Middle Tennessee. The final score was 83-56 in favor of LSU.

On Saturday, Mulkey lashed out at the “sleazy tactics of the media” after it was rumored that the Post would publish a story about her just a year after she led LSU to win the NCAA women’s tournament.

“I am fed up and I will not let the Washington Post attack this university, this amazing team of young women that I have, or me without a fight,” Mulkey said at the start of her lengthy indictment of the newspaper .

“I have hired the best defamation law firm in the country and I will sue the Washington Post if they publish a false story about me.”
