Former LSU forward and current Pelicans assistant Darnell Lazare joins Matt to kick off hour two of After Further Reveiw. Lazare talks the Pels’ season at the All-Star break. It’s been a tale of two seasons for New Orleans. Before Zion Williamson, and with Zion Williamson. Lazare talks the losing skid early in the year while Zion was on the shelf. What’s it like to go through that?
“It’s challenging for sure. You just have to keep coming to work everyday,” Lazare said. “We knew that if we kept working and kept fighting, we would eventually break through.”
It’s no doubt that Zion has made New Orleans better. Who has benefited the most on the team from Zion’s return?
“I would say probably Lonzo because of the type of player that Lonzo is,” Lazare said. “He’s a distributing player who likes to get other players involved. That’s been a nice little tandom there.”
Matt gives a brief preview of LSU’s matchup with Kentucky tomorrow night, and talks attendance numbers in the XFL.
LSU Deputy Director of Athletics Verge Ausberry joins the show to talk LSU Football scheduling with Matt. The Tigers announced a neutral site series with Florida State last week, and then today announced a home and home with Utah in 2031 and 2032. How did the Utah series come about?
“We’ve been talking to a lot of people about a lot of different games. You see we are going further out in the scheduling process,” Ausberry said. “I watched Utah throughout the year. They were in playoff position throughout the year. We starterd talking it was a great place for LSU fans to travel, and that’s how it came about.”
Musso catches you up on the former Tigers in the pros.
