LSU women’s hoops remains No. 8 in AP Top 25 entering Selection Sunday

The LSU women’s basketball team fell short in its attempt to get past the roadblock that South Carolina has presented in recent years, losing 79-72 in the SEC Tournament final as the Gamecocks remained undefeated.

Still, it was a solid run in Greenville, South Carolina, for the Tigers. They beat a pair of likely NCAA Tournament teams in Auburn and Ole Miss, and now they’ll await their postseason fate as they have the week off ahead of Selection Sunday.

LSU won’t be getting a boost in the rankings in the meantime. In the latest AP Top 25, the Tigers remained No. 8 as they have the last couple of weeks.

The Tigers at No. 8 and South Carolina at No. 1 were the only top-10 teams who didn’t see any movement following conference tournament week.

LSU is now preparing to hear its name called on Sunday, and it’s currently projected as a No. 2 seed. A top-four seed would guarantee the Tigers host their first two tournament games at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in Baton Rouge.
