Will Wade previews the SEC Tournament

Weekdays 3PM - 6PM

LSU Basketball head coach Will Wade joins Matt to preview LSU’s trip to Nashville for the SEC Tournament. The Tigers have not won a game in the tournament since 2014. Obviously this predates Wade’s time at LSU, but the coach talks why the drought has been so long.

“A lot of it’s the draw, and who you’re playing. So a lot goes into it,” Wade said. “A lot of the time we haven’t been taking a very good team. We’ve gotta go and play well. Nothing that happened in the past matters for this year.”

LSU won’t play until Friday night due to having the double bye. Coach Wade talks what the Tigers schedule will look like this week in preparation for Nashville.

“We took yesterday off and today off from practice,” Wade said. “I felt we needed to rest just as much physically as we did mentally.”

LSU will leave for Nashville on Wednesday afternoon.

It is thought by many that if LSU can hang around in the tournament that it could improve their seeding in the NCAA Tournament. Is this something Coach Wade will talk about with his team?

“Not much with the seeding part of it,” “Two of our nonconference teams have punched their ticket to the NCAA Tournament. If you look at historically what the committee has done. They reward teams who schedule well, and don’t reward those who don’t schedule well.”
