Los Angeles Times writer Ben Bolch has issued an apology about a column previewing the LSU women’s basketball team ahead of their Sweet 16 matchup against UCLA after Tigers head coach Kim Mulkey ripped the piece for being "sexist," "awful" and "wrong."

Bloch posted a lengthy apology on X days after Mulkey’s press conference in which she called out the column for "attacking" her players. Bloch described players as "villains" and "dirty debutantes" in his writing.

Mulkey’s criticisms followed her previous remarks about The Washington Post.
