LSU First To The Final Four

Sun Mar 26, 2006 9:11 am

Hold that Tiger!!!!!

LSU knocks off Texas 70-60 in overtime to become the first of four teams to make it to the Final Four in Indianapolis.

"Big Baby" Davis and Tyrus Thomas played awesome games, and again the LSU defense stifled the opponent's offense.

Props to the 'Horns on playing a hell of a game.

On to Indy next weekend!!!

Geaux Tigers!!!

Whomever LSU plays next UCLA/Memphis it should make for an interesting game. I wouldn't have given LSU a chance to make the final four, but beating Duke and Texas back to back they sure earned it. Enjoy the moment.

Indeed it should. If UCLA's the opponent there may be a civil war in the family.....I grew up in SoCal (but was more a USC fan than UCLA), and my brother lives outside San Diego.

I took what I thought was going to be the easy road in my brackets with Duke.....but for this I totally don't care that my brackets got blown up.

I rather imagine that there will be a run on Final Four shirts and hats at our local LSU gift store by about the middle of next week. We'll be among those in line.

There's still a lot of work to do, though. The games only get tougher as you go. But it does feel very sweet, perhaps more so since Katrina, to have this to celebrate.

Yes..its UCLA..Upon further review the UCLA-Memphis game was a classic example of how NOT to play basketball.

My brackets are screwed except the Minneapolis Region. I'm rooting for an all SEC Final with SEC teams. Let's go Gators!

Duke Sucks! They've screwed up my entire bracket!

It was an ugly game, but I hope this game shows the nation the kind of Defense that UCLA can play. Memphis couldn't make a single 3 until the end when they weren't being pressed. Not only that but we held them to their lowest score and shut down their star players.

UCLA vs. LSU should be great.

Well it's final, both the LSU Men and Women made it to the Final Four. The women beat Stanford tonight by a score of 62-59. The men go to Indianapolis, and the women go to Boston. Geaux Tigers!!!
