LSU's Road to the Final Four Begins with Butler

Monday, March 16, 2009 - 9:56pm

LSU basketball fans may not like the Tigers' seed or their destination, but griping won't put any points on the board.

The LSU men are the number eight seed in the south region, putting them against number 9 seed Butler. If the Tigers can advance past the Bulldogs, they would probably face North Carolina in round two.

The game against Butler - and the potential second round match-up - will be played a short drive away from the Tar Heels' campus in Greensboro, NC.

LSU clinched the SEC regular season championship early, but they didn't close the year strong. Still, the Tigers can't help but feel slighted.
