LSU athletic director Joe Alleva thinks nine or 10 SEC wins for the men's basketball team might not be enough for the Tigers to make the NCAA tournament, he said on 104.5 ESPN radio in Baton Rouge on Tuesday morning.

The loss on the road to Missouri and at home vs. Texas A&M 'disappointed' Alleva, who sits on the NCAA men’s basketball committee.
