An outcry over policy at LSU could lead to a Tiger legend getting his very own statue.

Under the old policy, LSU Basketball great Pete Maravich, namesake of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, would not be eligible to have his own statue because he did not graduate from the university.

Officials voted on Friday to change the policy to 100 hours, or about 3 years’ worth of LSU classes, which is criteria that Maravich meets.

Pete Maravich died 28 years ago at the age of 40.
