If there was any evidence needed as to how much the LSU Lady Tigers need a win Thursday at Ole Miss after Sunday’s 63-41 blowout loss at Arkansas, the numbers proved it Monday.

LSU’s RPI dropped from No. 63 to No. 67 according to the list released by the NCAA on Monday. The Lady Tigers slipped to 15-11 overall and 9-5 in SEC play, putting LSU’s brightening NCAA tournament hopes back into greater jeopardy.
