LSU women’s basketball takes a tumble in the AP Poll after SEC Tournament exit
LSU’s week at the SEC tournament in Greenville, South Carolina didn’t go as planned.
Although the Tigers avoided going out in Game 1 as the No. 2 seed, they suffered last year by beating Georgia in the quarter-final round, their streak ended with an embarrassing loss to three seeded Tennessee in the semi-finals.
The loss left LSU unable to avenge what was included in the tournament for its only loss of the campaign against undefeated South Carolina, who crushed the Vols to claim another SEC title.
It also had a big impact on teams in the AP top 25 as the Tigers fell from 4th to 9th despite still being 28-2 for the season. LSU will still be in the high-seeded NCAA Tournament, but falling out of the top 10 almost doesn’t bode well for this team’s chances of being the #1 seed.
