Panelist Bio


Pokey Chatman
Head Coach, Women's Basketball Louisiana State University

There are few coaches in basketball history that can match the success that Pokey Chatman has enjoyed in her first two full years as head coach of the LSU Lady Tigers basketball program.

In her two seasons, LSU has advanced to two NCAA Final Fours, won two Southeastern Conference regular season titles and earned a No. 1 seed in each of the last two NCAA Tournaments.

This past season the Ama, Louisiana native guided LSU to a 31-4 mark, including a perfect 15-0 record at home and 11 wins against top 25 opponents.

Chatman has not gone unrecognized for her success as a head coach. She was named the 2004-05 National Coach of the Year by the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) and the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and received the Naismith Award and the Victor Award as the country's top coach. Chatman was also named the 2005-06 SEC Coach of the Year and has earned the honor of being named the Black Coaches Association (BCA) Coach of the Year in 2004 and 2005.

The off season is not any less hectic for Chatman. She enters her second year serving on the 27-member WBCA Board of Directors as the BCA representative. Chatman also helped lead the 2005 United States World University Games team to a gold medal as an assistant coach. With Team USA, Chatman coached with Harvard head coach Kathy Delany-Smith to win her second medal in international competition, having also won a medal as a player with the 1990 USA Select Team.

Chatman was inducted into the LSU Athletics Hall of Fame in the spring of 1999.

Current Topic


     02/17 - Black & the Blue

What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve?
Last year’s shooting of an African-American male in Baton Rouge by two white police officers re-ignited a national debate on how law enforcement interacts with minority communities. Nationwide demonstrations were ultimately marred by the targeted ambush of 12 white officers in Dallas and the killing of three members of law enforcement in Baton Rouge. What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve? How can Louisiana’s Capital City productively move beyond these events? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on a special town hall edition, “Black & the Blue” Wednesday, February 22 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Monday, February 20)
