LSU just isn’t a basketball school. Never has been, never will be. Good pre-season win, though.

Boy, when LSU is good at basketball the PMAC can be better than Tiger stadium.

It's going to be an interesting SEC Basketball season for sure. LSU will be a force to be reckoned with. As for Bama I'm really expecting an above 500 conference record. Even one game above 500 will be ok for my personal opinion. If Bama and LSU can split home and home wins, that will be good but it won't be easy. LSU is no joke.

Tremont Waters is the best point guard we've had in a long time. The kid just might be one and done.

ade has got these guy believing and not quoting. At the like 7 or 6min mark Michigan was up by 8 orpWade has got these guy believing and not quoting. At the like 7 or 6min mark mich was up by 8 or9 and you felt the tide shifting against us. He called timeout and the team kept fighting and took it to them. So excited about this team and their identity, everyone saying pump the breaks and hoping to make tourney next year shite we got a shot playing ball like like this this year! We look good and we r still gelling! Fast across the board :)

Survived 2nd half gut check - Wade is the man & Waters/Epps = clutch down the stretch.
