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, did not go as planned.

Though the Tigers avoided a first-game exit as the No. 2 seed like they suffered last year, beating Georgia in the quarterfinal round, their run came to an end with an upset loss to three-seeded Tennessee in the semifinal.

That loss robbed LSU of a shot to avenge what was entering the tournament its only loss of the campaign against undefeated South Carolina, who took down the Vols in blowout fashion to capture another SEC title.

It also affected the teams standing in the AP Top 25 quite a bit as the Tigers fell from No. 4 to No. 9 despite still sitting at 28-2 on the season. LSU will still enter the NCAA tournament as a high seed, but nearly dropping out of the top 10 does not bode well for this team’s chances at a No. 1 seed.
