According to a report Thursday afternoon by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, LSU basketball finally has company in the field of the 2015 Legends Classic.
The Tigers, already confirmed to be in the Brooklyn-based tournament, will be joined by Arizona State, Marquette and North Carolina State, headlining the two-day showcase, from Nov. 23-24, housed in Barclays Center, home of the NBA's Nets.
With the draw of incoming signee Ben Simmons, LSU has been announced in this tournament for several weeks. As for the Tigers' potential opponents, and Rothstein indicated matchups are not set yet, here's how they're stacking up in their current seasons.
The Sun Devils are currently 15-12 overall, 7-7 in the Pac 12.
The Golden Eagles are 11-16 overall, 3-12 in the Big East.
The Wolfpack is 17-11 overall, 8-7 in the ACC.
LSU is entering the final three games of its conference season at 20-8 overall, 9-6 in the SEC. The Tigers will take on Ole Miss at home Saturday in a game that could prove pivotal for both teams' NCAA Tournament aspirations.
