6 reasons why the LSU basketball team will make the NCAA tourney


1. We have hands down the best point guard in the country. He is a whole different player from last year and has the ability to get to the rim with NBA range shooting the three. He also has a pullup jumper off the dribble that he has added to his game that he is actually making. I watch aaron craft play multiple times and he may be a better on ball defender then hickey but he is not a better overall defender.

2. We have won a game against a good team when the shots just weren't falling, missed freethrows until the end of the game and turned the ball over. Only a good team can pull that feat off.

3. Our perimeter defense is unbelievable and the press will be a weapon for the rest of the season. I can't say enough about the combination of hickey and charles on the perimeter. If the other teams best player in on the wing or plays the point then he in for a bad game.

4. We dominate the teams we are suppose to beat. This the one that really gets under my skin!! LSU 5-0 because we haven't played anybody!! If we wouldn't have lost those 4 games against scrubbs last year we would have been in the tournament. I just don't understand how we can take wins for granted when just 2 years ago we couldn't beat anybody. Be thankful we have the ability to beat mississippi valley state.

5. The depth on this team is unbelieveable. We have 7 player's capable of leading the team in scoring any night. Coleman is one of the most versatile player i have seen at LSU. Johnny O was getting triple teamed lastnight and still didn't want to kick the ball back out. Even though he should have i loved the i can't be stopped approach.

6. The SEC is horrible this year and the only team LSU can't beat is prolly florida. Kentucky is talented but young and will lose there share of games in the SEC this year. Alabama is a good solid team we will have some epic battles with. The rest leave something to be desired and already been losing to the same type of teams we complain about beating.


I love the team CJJ has put together and the offense they run. The season just starting and the only place I see LSU going for here is up. I know I will get blasted for starting this tread but i will look like a god when we win over 20 games and finish in the top 5 in the SEC. We will rank in the top 25 at some point of the year too. YEAH I SAID IT

The enthusiasm is great. The realism is nonexistant.

Put the pipe down. Hickey isn't the best point in the country, and we have yet to see how we'll match up against big teams.

Tourney isn't out of the question, but this is a year to learn the system and grow. This squad is going to explode next year though, and probably be a top 10 national team.

He's improved but this just is not realistic.

quote:

We have won a game against a good team

Im pumped too, but Seton Hall is not that good of a squad.

Yep.

quote:

Recession has hit us all.

quote:

The SEC is horrible this year

No doubt, which is why we will have a hard time getting in the tournament.

You may be right about getting in the tourney, but I just dont see it. They are much improved but 2012 is not the year. Next year we will be very very good. Like your enthusiasm though

BTW, can I have some of what you're on? I can meet you behind a gas station somewhere, it'll be cool.

re: 6 reasons why the LSU basketball team will make the NCAA tourney


Love the enthusiasm. Great to see some folks getting a little excited about basketball again. But SLOW DOWN. The team is improving. They're fun to watch. But this OOC schedule is mostly garbage (LSU plays a team called Houston Baptist who I don't if they're an actual college, or just a rec league team). Nevertheless, the 3 game road-trip coming up should give you a better indication as to what this team may be able to do going forward. Let's just let these guys play and see what happens. No need to build up lofty expectations 5 games into the season, only to be pissed at the players, coaches, etc. at the end of the year if they don't meet those expctations (such as the NCAAT). All that said, I'd love nothing more than for your prediction today to come true.

we go 2-1 on that road trip at worse and will be 11-1 going into the game against florida. That is my prediction and i'm sticking to it.

they should get to 6-0 but game 7 they'll be dogs in. And its their first road game. That will be a very good test. Likely an L but you never know.

completely agree. It's nice to be excited, as there hasn't been much to be excited about. But the committee looks at SOS, and ours is gonna suck.

I view this as a year to put a system in place and just change the culture of the program. We've been in a 20 year funk, and it's nice to feel optimistic for once. The tourney is possible, but I will be happy with an NIT bid, some actual improvement in quality of play, and that recruiting class showing up on campus next year.
