LSU Draws 6 Seed in NCAA Tournament, First Game is Friday
The day after head coach Will Wade was fired with cause, the LSU Tigers (22-11) basketball team learned what seed they are and the side of the bracket they are playing in.
LSU draws a 6 seed in the Midwest region, facing off against 11 seed Iowa State (20-12) Friday night in Milwaukee at 6:20.
LSU will be led by interim coach Kevin Nickelberry, who stepped into the role yesterday after Wade and assistant coach Bill Armstrong were fired.
Wade was cited for five Level 1 violations, including but not limited to allegedly paying a recruiter for influence over a player's decision to play at LSU, making payments through an account in his wife's name, sending money to a former player's fiancee to keep her quiet about the Wade paying players to play for the Tigers, and much more.
