BATON ROUGE, LA - On Sunday the NCAA released the 2022 Men's basketball tournament brackets. Our LSU Fighting Tigers landed the #6 seed in the Midwest Regional and will play 11 seed Iowa State in in Milwaukee on Friday at 6:20pm CT on TBS.
The Tigers will be without their former head coach Will Wade who was fired by athletic director Scott Woodward on Saturday for several major recruiting violations.
LSU assistant Kevin Nickelberry was name interim head coach. It will be the second time in four seasons that the Tigers will enter the March Madness tournament with an interim head coach.
“This time a couple of days ago, I didn't think I was going to be sitting here,” said Nickelberry. “I can promise you we’re going to play with integrity, with character, play for LSU and those letters on the front of our jerseys. Yes, it’s been a tough couple of days. But at the end of the day, you’re asking us to go out and play basketball. We’ve been very successful this year playing basketball, so I’m excited and I know the kids are excited. They’ve earned the right to be here.”
