The Will Wade era at LSU officially begins Friday night when the Tigers open up the 2017 season vs. Alcorn State in the PMAC.

Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. CT, and Fanfest will be held outside of the Maravich Center beforehand from 5:30-6:30 p.m. The game will be video streamed on the ESPN app and ESPN3. Per LSUSports.net:

Will Wade, coming off a first signing day when two four-star recruits signed with the Tigers, will be trying to put on the court returnees who have improved under his tutelage and a No. 16-ranked recruiting class that includes two grad transfers.

Senior Duop Reath at forward (12.6 ppg, 6.2 rpg) and sophomore guard Skylar Mays (8.3 ppg, 3.6 apg) have received applause from Coach Wade during the preseason and in an offense in which he likes to keep two point guards in the game, Mays is expected to be paired with the freshman from New Haven, Connecticut, Tremont Waters. Waters averaged 25.3 points, 4.6 assists and 4.6 steals last year at Notre Dame High.

While earlier this week Coach Wade seemed to have the four-position starter ready to name, but that was still in a state of flux on Thursday with senior Aaron Epps still questionable after his leg being in a boot for some 10 days last month. That spot could go to sophomore Wayde Sims or possibly graduate transfer Jeremy Combs from Dallas/North Texas or Natchitoches freshman Brandon Rachal.
