BATON ROUGE – LSU was projected as a No. 2 seed Thursday night on ESPN during the NCAA Tournament selection committee’s first of two midseason top-16 seed reveals.

The committee will make its second reveal Thursday, February 23 during halftime of the South Carolina-Tennessee game on ESPN that will tip-off at 6 p.m. CT. The full 68 team field for the NCAA Tournament will be announced by the committee on the NCAA Women’s Basketball Selection Show that will air on ESPN on Sunday, March 12 at 7 p.m. CT.

The Tigers are one of two remaining undefeated teams in the nation and they are scheduled to square off against South Carolina’ the nation’s other undefeated team, Sunday in Columbia at 1 p.m. CT on ESPN. LSU is the No. 3 team in the latest AP Poll and South Carolina, the defending National Champion, has been ranked No. 1 all season. This will mark just the eighth time, and first since 1993, that two SEC teams ranked inside the AP top three will meet in women’s basketball.

"A #2 seed" or "THE #2 seed"? There's a difference!

Undefeated and a #2 seed?

Which means if they lose to South Carolina, they will drop between #5 - #8 in the rankings!

Weak weak schedule. Beat South Carolina or win SEC tournament and they will be a 1 seed

It’s confusing but it appears they just ranked the top 16 teams. So if we’re second, that would mean we would get the second number 1 seed. The 5th team in their rankings would be the top 2 seed.

Edit: just read the NCAA’s release and we are the number 5 team in the rankings. What a joke.
