According to Shelby Mast and Scott Gleeson with USA TODAY Sports, LSU is one of "seven hot teams with Elite Eight potential" this season.

4. LSU (19-8, 8-6 SEC): The Tigers' performance against Kentucky (a 71-69 loss on Feb. 10) was a good barometer for this LSU team's potential. Jordan Mickey and Jarell Martin both average more than 16 points a game.
This article was published on Monday and since then LSU is now 20-8, 9-6 SEC after a dominant 23 point victory over Auburn on Tuesday night.

The Tigers will look to finish the season strong with two home games against Ole Miss and Tennessee followed by an important road test at No. 16 Arkansas in the season finale.

LSU can also improve their resume in the SEC Tournament which will begin on March 11th in Nashville, TN.

As far a bracket projections go, ESPN's Joe Lunardi has LSU as a 10 seed facing 7 seed Michigan State in Omaha and USA Today Sports has LSU as a 9 seed playing 8 seed Ohio State in the East Region.

They can win it all or not even make the tournament. Never seen a hot and cold LSU team like this going back to watching Johnny play as a Tiger. Team seems to struggle in half court offense and blocked shots initiate fast break points. Extended television timeouts should help the Tigers overcome perceived lack of depth. Big men have improved on staying out of foul trouble. One game at a time and the Tigers may be a final four contender. I only see Kentucky matching our athleticism and pace - two lethal combinations.
