LSU Advances

LSU beat Butler 75-71 in the first round (actually the first game played, besides the meaningless Play-In Game) of the 2009 NCAA Tournament. The Tigers will now get to face the South Region #1 team, North Carolina on Saturday.

North Carolina defeated Radford 101-58. LSU is a long shot to beat UNC, but stranger things have happened. If Marcus Thornton gets hot and LSU's defense can slow down the Tarheels and keep them from getting second chance points, the game may go LSU's way.

At any rate, it's been a great first year for Trent Johnson. LSU won the SEC and advanced in the NCAA Tournament. Not bad for a team that only won 13 games last year.
