LSU women's hoops holds out hope for NCAA Tourney run
BATON ROUGE - The LSU women's basketball team is riding a 6-game losing streak, but as the team prepares for its SEC tournament opener on Thursday, the players maintain they can turn things around.
The Tigers will get another shot at Alabama after the Crimson Tide just beat LSU on Sunday and Tigers head coach Nikki Caldwell says she likes the opportunity to get quick revenge.
"We know what it felt like to lose that game," Caldwell said Tuesday, "and we don't want it to happen again."
The Tigers have the #1 RPI in the country, but with so many teams log-jammed in the middle of the SEC standings, they'll probably need at least one or two wins in the SEC tournament to make the big dance.
