HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) - After a nightmarish, injury riddled campaign a season ago, the LSU Lady Tigers appear to be heading towards an NCAA Tournament appearance this year.
The Lady Tigers are currently 20-11 overall, basically flip-flopping their horrific mark of 10-21 from a year ago.
While that's great improvement, it still isn't approaching the glory years spearheaded by former Capitol High School and current WNBA star Seimone Augustus. During Augustus' days as a Lady Tiger (2002-03 through 2005-06) LSU was 121-19 overall and 48-8 against SEC opponents, including a perfect 14-0 conference mark during the 2004-05 campaign.
LSU reached the Elite 8 during Augustus' freshman year, before LSU soared to three straight Final Four appearances to close out her collegiate career.
Augustus recently visited with the WAFB-TV Sports team in Hammond, Louisiana, during the girls' high school state championships and shared her thoughts on the current state of LSU women's basketball and where the Lady Tigers are heading.
