The LSU men's basketball team have new life after being bounced out of the first round of the Southeastern Conference tournament last week.  They lost a heart breaker in overtime to Auburn 73-70 and then the waiting began.

The Tigers had to wait for all the tournaments to end and then they gathered all together to watch the NCAA selection show.  When the dust cleared, the LSU basketball team found themselves with a berth in the NCAA tournament.

The Tigers will be part of the the East Region bracket and they were seeded #8.  They will face #9 seeded North Carolina State tonight in Pittsburgh at 8:20 Central time.

The game will be televised on TBS.
