Iowa’s elimination from the Elite Eight means LSU will have to try to win its second national title next year. However, that will be a tall order for them, as some influential names like Angel Reese and Hailey Van Lith are no longer part of their roster. Still, fans can look forward to Flau’jae Johnson, the 2023 SEC Rookie of the Year, making the most of her NCAA title-winning experience. But before that, she got some much-needed guidance from 4x NCAA champion Breanna Stewart.

Talking to her about different topics The best of both worlds with Flau’jae podcast, one of the final moments of the episode was Flau’jae asking for valuable advice on how to win National Championships. “Be consistent. Be consistent, like you’re setting the tone. Whether it’s in summer training, preseason, in season. National championships aren’t just won in March and April. It starts in August, September.” Stewart told Johnson on the podcast.

Stewart was part of Geno Auriemma’s elite unit that won four consecutive NCAA titles from 2013 to 2016. Johnson, on the other hand, won a title as a freshman in 2023 under Kim Mulkey and alongside Angel Reese. Now, with several key players leaving the program, the 5-foot-10 guard could be saddled with more responsibility than before.

The two-time WNBA champion also had some words of wisdom for Lady Tiger on that front. Stewart added: “Your team is different. Your team has changed since you first won. You’re showing them the ropes, you know, because now you have to lead this group. Take advantage of that. Take the lead.”

Johnson will certainly be given a bigger role on the team. While she prepares for the upcoming NCAA season, Johnson has also made significant progress in her music career.

Flau’jae Johnson’s musical debut took its first step last month with the release of her album The best of both worlds. This project is in collaboration with 5-time Grammy Award winner Lil Wayne. A teaser of this development was shared by her at the 2024 Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

However, its official release was announced by her via a special post on Instagram. She captioned it, “I want to thank God for the opportunity to use my voice as a vessel to share His love, light and positivity. Secondly, I want to thank my mom for sacrificing EVERYTHING to help me chase my dream, I love you for life.

Much of LSU’s national aspirations will hinge on Flau’jae Johnson. As a sophomore, she showed she’s more than qualified to step up and deliver when the situation calls for it. Can she be the primary catalyst to lead LSU to another historic campaign? Only time will tell.
