INDIANAPOLIS – If the season ended today, the LSU men’s basketball team would be in the NCAA tournament as a No. 10 seed. That’s the view, anyway, of the mock selection committee, a group of 20 media members who met here Thursday and Friday to go through the process of selecting the 68-team field.

In bracket decisions made Friday, LSU would be the No. 10 seed in the East Regional, taking on No. 7 Ohio State in a second-round game (first full round) in Pittsburgh. The East Regional teams wind up in Syracuse, N.Y.
