We now have 5 in ProBBall HOF and only 3 in Football HOF, seems odd
Two different halls for sure, but given we are by any measure a top 10 all time football program and MAYBE a top 40 at best BBall, kind of interesting we have these numbers.
Also shocking when you think we have the two players who hold the all time scoring marks for all 4 years (CJ frosh, PM soph-senior) and Oneil, yet we were only ever a top 10 or so bbal power for maybe 6-8 years.
LSU actually was ranked in the Top 20 in AT LEAST 14 seasons, if not several more:
1935, 1953, 1970, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1990, 1991, 2000, 2006, 2009.
LSU also has been to 5 Final Fours (if you count 1935 when we won our 1 NCAA title), and been to at least 10 Sweet 16s.
We only 3 to my knowledge in the NBA HOF:
Pettit, Maravich, and O'Neal.
I think LSU is at best a Top 30 all-time basketball school, Top 35 at worst.
