BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Tiger basketball team is on a tear and has earned some big time respect in the latest NCAA Tournament prediction by NCAA.com basketball expert Andy Katz.
LSU, winners of six in a row, would be a No. 4 seed and play Hofstra in the East Regional if the tournament started today.
After a disappointing loss to Houston, the Tigers (13-3, 3-0) have victories against St. Mary’s, Furman, ULM, Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss.
LSU is back home Saturday night and will host South Carolina (9-7, 4-0) in the PMAC.
Tipoff is set for 5 p.m. and the game will air on the SEC Network.
