Hold off on those Final Four tickets

Lost in LSU's run to the top of the SEC men's basketball standings is this one little nit - guard play.

The Tigers showed on Wednesay night against Arkansas why they could go deep in the NCAA Tournament - a fabulous front line with enormous athleticism. Then they showed why they could be a first-round knockout - turnovers and erratic guard play.

LSU has a front line good enough to keep the Tigers in any game they play. Their backcourt - even with the improved play at the point by Darrel Mitchell - means they could go up in flames at any moment. Witness the Houston game.

What does this mean for LSU fans? Hold on to your seats. And hold off on making plans for a deep run into the tournament. Until proven otherwise, guard play will detemine how special this season is for the Tigers.
