LSU All Grow'd Up

This isn't supposed to happen.

They can't shoot straight, they're too young, they have untimely unforced turnovers, they can't knock down a three and they're backcourt doesn't have enough fire power to do enough damage in the NCAA Tournament ... yet here they are ... the LSU Tigers back in the Final Four for the first time in 20 years.

Through each round of this year's tournament, the Tigers have seemed to mature into a unbelievably athletic wrecking crew that finds a way through sheer will to overcome everything going against it. They've never won pretty, but style points don't matter when it comes to getting your ticket punched to go to Indianapolis.

Can the Tigers beat the Memphis/UCLA winner? Could the Tigers learn from their earlier match up with Connecticut to be victorious in rematch? Based on what I've seen, there isn't a better team left when it comes to just finding a way to win.
