What the SEC tournament means for LSU baseball

The Tigers entered the season as the top baseball team in the country, and they remained that way for most of the season.

However, LSU limped to the finish line in the regular season. Coach Jay Johnson’s squad dropped two of its final three series, and now it enters the week in Hoover, Alabama, as the No. 3 seed.

In terms of the NCAA tournament, it likely doesn’t matter too much what LSU does this week. Per D1Baseball’s latest projections, the team is the No. 4 national seed, meaning it would host in both the regional and super regional rounds.

While a strong showing at the tournament would certainly give LSU some momentum, it probably won’t mean too much from a resume perspective, and that’s the sentiment On3’s Jonathan Wagner shared in his breakdown of what the SEC tournament means for each team.

LSU ended the regular season by winning two out of three against Georgia on the road, in a series that could have been disastrous for the Tigers. If the lost to Georgia, LSU could have fallen out of top eight range. But now, it feels as if LSU is a sure bet to be one of the top eight overall seeds when the full field is announced. Even if they struggle in Hoover, the Tigers aren’t likely to fall very far.

LSU is the No. 3 seed in the SEC Tournament. They play on Wednesday against the winner of South Carolina vs. Georgia.

The Tigers will look to get back to the way they were playing earlier in the year when they open up against either the Gamecocks or the Bulldogs.
