[quote]s that LSU bought approx 1,000 tickets for tonight game. I'm not sure how they came up with that number, but that's a really solid showing if true. [/quote]

His name was Gary Simpson and he averaged 34 ppg. He was 6'1" and from Granite City, IL. Tough kid, tough life. Magician with the ball.
Averaged 14.4 as a sophomore but only played 24 games before getting in trouble with his grades and losing his 2S draft deferment and getting drafted into the U...

[quote]If we can just get all our players to play with focus and energy together for one game that would make me happy. [/quote]
If we bring out our press every now & then, that might do it.
Also if he allows Hickey (and Coleman/Stringer) to push the ball on fast breaks. I used to love to watc...

Yes, as of Friday am.
StubHub selling for $99+ :lol: Crazy.
Even the SMU fans were taken by surprise by the quick sell out.

[quote] don't you think a hotel send off is a little much? I mean, this is the NIT not THE ncaa tourny or some kind of championship send off.....just saying. [/quote]
Not really. I organized a road trip to Bama in January and about 30 fans + the Stringer family gathered to hi 5 etc.

FYI for those going to the game.
Team is staying at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotels,
Campbell Center, 8250 North Central Expressway, Dallas.
If you want to give them a send-off be before the game, be there by 5:30 in the lobby. :cheers:

I had 2 LSU banners made for the SECT tournament. If you watched any of the games, you probably saw us waving one.
I also collected some 3 signs from a home game. And some pompoms. He can hand them out.

Not sure where the team is staying, but their routine is to leave their hotel to board their bus 1hr 30 mins before game time.
It's fun to crowd the lobby at that time and cheer the players on as they leave.
I'll see if I can find out where they're staying....

[quote]If you look at the seating chart it looks like section 214 is the closest GA section to the Visitors bench. I think we should all try to sit in 214 as close to the front as we can. That way the team will be able to see us and hear us all! [/quote]
