Monday’s nonconference finale is an opportunity for head coach Kim Mulkey (Hammond, La.), junior All-American Kalani Brown (Slidell, La.) and freshman Moon Ursin (Destrehan, La.) to return to their home state to coach and play in front of family and friends.

Brown attended Salmen High School, where she is the all-time leader with 2,392 points, 1,472 rebounds and 605 blocks. She led the Spartans to four-straight Class 4A State Championship games, winning titles in 2013 and 2014. The two-time Times-Picayune Player of the Year also picked up Gatorade Player of the Year, McDonald’s All-American and Naismith All-American accolades.

Ursin, the only three-time Gatorade Player of the Year award winner in Louisiana, led Destrehan High School to a Class 5A State Championship and perfect 35-0 season in 35-0. She secured three District 7-5A MVP and Defensive Player of the Year honors, three first team All-State accolades and two Miss Basketball Louisiana honors.

The Lady Bears bring a six-game winning streak into the matchup and are 9-1 on the season.
