LSU Women’s Basketball coach, Kim Mulkey, made headlines tonight during her team’s game against Kentucky, after losing her temper on the referees after a no-call on Tigers guard Khayla Pointer.
Footage shows Mulkey pushing past someone on her bench, and walking out on the court, shouting at an official and sticking a finger in his face.
Mulkey was given a technical but allowed to stay in the game. Kentucky would beat LSU 78-63.

Whoever decided to play “The Chicken Dance” during this review (and especially after Kim Mulkey’s expletive-fueled explosion) deserves a HUGE raise #SECWBB

Watching the officials review the Kim Mulkey technical and the music transitioning to the Chicken Dance is absolutely hilarious.

So, Kim Mulkey had a bit of an outburst. Made a motion toward an official and then followed him onto the floor until midcourt where her assistants and some players stopped her.
Meanwhile, Rhyne Howard is out here clapping along to the chicken dance.
Weird few minutes.

It appears Kim Mulkey wanted a foul. Might need some expert lip readers to confirm…

kim mulkey having a temper tantrum and getting into an official’s face isn’t new. doing it in a pink sequined dress shirt does give it some extra toddler-y flair, though #SECWBB pic.twitter.com/Lx0j78t2HT
