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

ESPN has LSU as a No. 8 seed playing No. 9 Rutgers in Omaha in the South (Houston) region. The winner would likely go on to face No. 1 Baylor in the second round.

CBS has LSU as a No. 10 seed playing No. 7 Providence in Tampa in the South (Houston) region. The winner would go on to face the winner of No. 2 Florida State vs. No. 15 N Dakota State in the second round.

The Tigers are currently 21-10, (12-6 SEC) with a NET Ranking of 28.

LSU opens up the SEC Tournament this week as the No. 3 seed and will play either Vanderbilt, Arkansas or South Carolina on Friday night. Full bracket details.

Am I the only one who things a 10 seed projection is laughable when we have a 28 NET rating?

Agreed, but the early losses really screwed us out of a higher seed.

gimme that 10 seed. the opponent at (7) is no better than a (8) or (9). However the 2nd round game vs. a 2 is a much wider gap when compared to a 1..........usually

Most years, but there isnt a single eliete buzzsaw in college basketball, could argue we would match up better against baylor than Florida state. That being said hopefully we can go on a run in nashville and get to a 6 seed

Much rather play Baylor than FSU. I think our offense would give Baylor fits.

I may be in the minority but I think we can pretty much hang with anybody. I could easily see us pulling off an upset. Also, this is the first ncaa tournament with Will Wade coaching.

...and no one in attendance. LSU will have a home-court advantage!
