LSU has its dress rehearsal for NCAA tournament

March 17, 2019

LSU’s stay at the Southeastern Conference tournament was as short as possible.

The Tigers played their one game and dropped a tight decision to Florida 76-73 when freshman point guard Andrew Nembhard made a 3-point basket with one second remaining.

So, it will be no double championship for LSU.

The Tigers will have to settle for the SEC regular-season championship, while either Auburn or Tennessee will claim the SEC tournament title. LSU did capture one more SEC crown than Kentucky in 2019.
