SI tabs Lady Tigers No. 1 in women's poll

LSU's Lady Tigers basketball team was selected No. 1 by Sports Illustrated and Seimone Augustus is featured in the magazine's annual College Basketball Preview edition that hit the newsstand this week.

SI annually selects a preseason top 10 for women. This year LSU topped the poll, above Tennessee, Texas, UConn, Georgia, Duke, Baylor, Ohio State, Minnesota and Notre Dame.

The Augustus feature is a four-page story written by SI's Kelli Anderson, including a full page photo of the junior from Baton Rouge.

Augustus, a preseason All-American is a leading candidate for the nation's top awards and to repeat as a Kodak All-American.

The Lady Tigers, already 3-0 this season after wins over Maine, Arizona State and No. 8 Baylor, are scheduled to play three more of SI's top 10 team, including a December trip to Minnesota and Southeastern Conference home games against both Tennessee and Georgia.

Augustus and LSU return to action on Sunday by hosting Southern Miss at the Houma Civic Center in Houma, La., at 2 p.m. CST.
