Augustus graduated from LSU in 2005 after leading the Tigers to three straight Final Four appearances. She was named National Player of the Year and SEC Player of the Year twice.

The statue, which will include other LSU greats Bob Pettit, Shaquille O’Neal and Pete Maravich, has already been cast, the school said. It will be unveiled “in the coming months.”

“Words can’t express the gratitude I feel in my heart,” Augustus said. “To leave a timeless legacy of inspiration for generations to follow is a lifelong goal, and with this announcement, I am humbly honored.”

LSU said Augustus is “a generational player who made a transformational impact on LSU Women’s Basketball.” She’s the first female student-athlete the school has honored with a statue. The Tigers retired her No. 33 jersey in 2010.

The Lynx drafted Augustus No. 1 overall in 2006, and she rewarded them by winning Rookie of the Year. She won Finals MVP in 2011, and also won titles with the Lynx in 2013, 2015 and 2017. She’s also a three-time gold medalist with the U.S. Olympic team.
