Go with what you know.

That seems to be the motto of LSU’s new men’s basketball coach Matt McMahon.

The Tigers have now secured three players from Murray State via the transfer portal with the addition of big man KJ Williams.

A fifth-year senior during his final year of eligibility in 2022-23, last season’s Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year averaged a career-high 18 points with 8.4 rebounds for McMahon’s Racers.

The Cleveland, Miss. native had declared for the NBA Draft and entered the transfer portal back in March.

Williams joins Justice Hill and Trae Hannibal as ex-Murray State players to follow their coach to Baton Rouge this offseason.
