LSU is dancing again!

The 18-9 Tigers are an 8 seed in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. After finishing as the runner-up in the SEC Tournament, the Tigers now pivot to the Round of 64. They will face the St. Bonaventure Bonnies in what should be an interesting matchup.

The Bonnies won the A-10 Tournament, dismissing Duquesne, Saint Louis, and VCU along the way. They went 16-4 in their truncated season, fending off many of their foes along the way towards the end.

The last time LSU was in the tourney was 2019 when they went in as a 3 seed. They, of course, got to the Sweet 16 before they were defeated by Michigan State. They will likely face the 1 seed Michigan Wolverines if they win, and will have their work cut out for them if so. That being said, that could be fun if they go through to the Round of 32.
