ESPN and CBS Sports released updated NCAA Tournament projections this week which included LSU.

ESPN has the Tigers as a No. 8 seed playing No. 9 San Diego St. in West Lafayette, IN. The winner would likely go on to face No. 1 Gonzaga in the second round.

CBS also has LSU as a No. 8 seed but playing No. 9 Colorado St. in West Lafayette. The winner would likely go on to face No. 1 Gonzaga in the second round.

The Tigers are currently 13-6, (8-4 SEC) with a NET Ranking of 26.

LSU wants to stay away from that 8 or 9 seed to avoid playing a one seed in the second round.

In Gonzaga or Baylor’s bracket for sure. Ohio State and Michigan are not the worst matchups possible.

I like one I saw that has us as a 10 in Michigan’s bracket with a softer 2 seed can’t remember who

LSU has some history of being successful as a #10 seed. That would probably be a better scenario than potentially being a sacrificial lamb as a #8 or #9 seed.

If you want to be the best, then you have to beat the best. Bring on Gonzaga.
