Before her coaching career, Eason was a four-year letter winner and three-year starter from 2007-2011 at Louisiana State University. She played under Hall of Fame Coach Van Chancellor and reached the Final Four in 2008. During her career, LSU compiled a 90-40 record- winning at least 19 games each season. She reached the NCAA Tournaments three times at LSU and won a SEC Championship in 2008.
