a few players from LSU said to reporters that they didn't really want to play in the NIT after a dissapointing year. They played at home and lost to Tulane.
May have just been a few. That game was a hard sell-out at the Assembly Center. Unlike other games,student tickets went on sale a couple of days before the game. Unfortunately,I had one of those pesky little things called "test" that afternoon and they issued them all before I could get down there. Tulane popped us pretty good, 83-72.
Hard luck team that year. 14-13 overall,but almost won the SEC. Finished at 11-7,but we were 10-4 at one time and then lost a close one at home to Georgia and then there was the clock fiasco at the end of the Tennessee game. Thank goodness for Tennessee and the refs that was over Mardi Gras break weekend.
