BATON ROUGE - LSU hosted a vigil to honor late basketball star Wayde Sims after his murder last week.

The basketball team announced the gathering, which was held Tuesday outside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center around 8 o'clock.

"We're sad but we're going to get through this," Wayde Sims' dad, Wayne, said.

Another vigil was held for Sims Saturday afternoon at Southern University, and LSU held a moment of silence in Tiger Stadium ahead of it's game against Ole Miss that same day.

Sims was shot and killed early Friday morning of last week during a fight near Southern's campus. It happened after a homecoming concert at the university.

The man who allegedly shot Sims, Dyteon Simpson, was arrested Saturday and booked on one count of second-degree murder.
