Undefeated Basketball Tigers Up To No. 16/17 In National Polls

BATON ROUGE – After two more wins last week including a neutral court win in Bossier City over Louisiana Tech on Saturday, the 11-0 LSU Tigers basketball team moved up in both the AP media poll and the Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll powered by USA Today.

The Tigers moved up four sports in the Ferris Mowers poll as the 32 coaches moved LSU up four spots this week in their poll.

In the AP poll, the 60 voters put LSU up two notches to No. 17.

LSU remains No. 3 in the latest NCAA NET rankings.

LSU will host Lipscomb in the final pre-Christmas contest Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Tickets are on sale at the LSU Athletics Ticket Office and online at LSUTix.net.

One has to go back to the end of the 2018-29 season to find a time LSU was ranked higher than 16 in either the media or the coaches’ poll.
