The Tigers moved up to No. 17 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll and No. 18 in the Associated Press media poll. Both polls had the Tigers at No. 21 a week ago.
The Tigers have now been ranked in the Associated Press poll six times, and four straight weeks. It's the most times LSU has been ranked since the 1999-2000 season and the highest ranking for LSU since the final ranking of the 2000 season when LSU was ranked 10th in the country.
There is one more AP poll this season, next Monday following the conference tournaments.
LSU travels to the SEC Tournament in Nashville and will play a quarterfinal game on Friday at 6:30 p.m. against the winner of Thursday's Vanderbilt-Auburn game. The LSU game will be regionally televised on JP Sports and broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network affiliates and in the "Geaux Zone powered by USAgencies" at LSUsports.net.
