After dropping only one spot on the NCAA.com RPI to 54th following Tuesday’s 68-62 road loss to Texas A&M, LSU remained on the NCAA tournament bracket of ESPN.com’s Joe Lunardi that was updated Thursday morning.

LSU was penciled in on Lunardi’s bracket as the No. 11 seed in the West regional, facing sixth-seeded SMU in a second-round game. Interestingly, SMU eliminated LSU from the NIT last spring.
