Austin: The Starkey Era Begins

By Jean Neuberger - March 17, 2007

The last time we saw LSU, they were playing for the SEC Tournament title. Pokey Chatman was the coach, and things couldn't have been looking better for the Lady Tigers.

Then Vandy upset them. Chatman resigned under controversy. And things looked very shaky in Tigerland.

Tonight, Bob Starkey and his Lady Tigers attempt to find stability, as #3 LSU takes on #14 UNC-Asheville.

I'm not exaggerating when I say that NC-Asheville looks like a high school team compared to LSU. The Tigers are taller, bigger, and look like they could just walk all over the Bulldogs tonight.

But this is March, and with the controversy of Chatman's departure swirling over Baton Rouge, anything is possible tonight in Austin. Just ask West Virginia, who pulled off the biggest upset of the tournament 30 minutes ago.

The Tigers have faced tough times before, with Sue Gunter's tragic death, and the devestation of Hurricane Katrina. Will their resilience show up again tonight? We're about to find out, as this game is underway.
