LSU athletic director Joe Alleva joined “Your Morning Drive” on 104.5/104.9 FM ESPN in Baton Rouge on Friday and spoke briefly about the LSU Basketball and the teams chances of making the NCAA Tournament this year. Per The Advocate:
“This is my fifth year on the committee, so I have a lot of experience doing this. As of yesterday, LSU’s RPI was 82. There has never been a team picked in the tournament at-large with an RPI over 80,” Alleva said. “As of right now, I don’t think (the chances are) very good.
“In other words, we need to win a lot of games. We can’t afford to lose many more games going forward.”
The Tigers (16-10, 9-4 SEC) travel to Knoxville to face Tennessee (12-14, 5-8 SEC) on Saturday in one of many must win games remaining on the Tigers schedule.
