Kim Mulkey weighs in about alleged controversy following LSU Tigers’ second-round victory

Kim Mulkey has found herself mired in controversy over the past week as she has accused Washington Post reporter Kent Babb of spending the past two years working on a hit piece against her.

Following the LSU Tigers’ second-round 83-56 victory over the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, she was asked if the team was distracted by the controversy, responding:

“No. Listen man, we’re not going to let one sleazy reporter distract us from what we’re trying to do. Absolutely not. My kids didn’t even know I said that yesterday. That team’s not involved in this.

They were in shock when they saw all that on the internet. I don’t take that stuff to my team. Was that the question or did you have a second part?”

Mulkey previously claimed that Babb has tried to get her to comment on the story for two years.

She accused him of trying to get former coaches and players to comment negatively on her and threatening legal action against both the reporter and the publication.
