The fourth season of monthly Tipoff Luncheons with LSU men’s coach Johnny Jones begins Tuesday at the L’Auberge Hotel and Casino.

The monthly gatherings, which will be held throughout the course of the 2015-16 basketball season, are presented again this year by Hub International.

Each luncheon, Jones will speak about his team and answer questions from the media and audience. Most months, Jones will be joined by a guest who’ll speak to the crowd and take questions.

As is the tradition for the opening luncheon, Lady Tigers coach Nikki Fargas will be on hand to discuss her team as it prepares for the upcoming season.

The luncheons will be held in the Bon Temps Buffet, which is located on the ground floor of the resort in the casino area.

The buffet, which costs $14.99 per person, is available at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at 12:10 p.m.
