The show will also preview LSU’s first home tournament since 1987, the Hispanic College Funds Classic, set for Nov. 22 and 24 at the Maravich Assembly Center. Southern, Nicholls State and South Alabama will join LSU in the four-game, two-day event that is sandwiched around the LSU-Ole Miss football game on Nov. 23.

Temple and Bridgewater are both seniors and both have received their college degrees. LSU is one of the few Division I teams with two college graduates on their roster for the 2002-03 season. Temple averaged 13.4 points for the Tigers in an injury-riddled season, while Bridgewater averaged seven points and four boards a year ago.

The Tigers are coming off a 19-15 season in which they won seven of the last 11 games and advanced to the second round of the NIT, their second post-season appearance in the last three years despite NCAA-mandated scholarship limitations. LSU has its full complement of 13 scholarships for the 2002-03 campaign.
