Although another weekend victory against Arkansas may not improve the seeding, I think LSU playing their best at this time is great for momentum and teamwork as they prepare mentally and physically for the NCAA tournament.

I think a win today locks in a 5 seed. A loss and you may be a 6. I think you have to win the whole thing to potentially get to a 4

Lot of past experience points to fact that this weekend results do not matter very much at all. Be glad to see improved seeding though. Watch where BAMA or Florida end up after falling flat yesterday

Exactly. Unless you win the whole thing, it rarely improves the seed you would have got before the conference tourney.
