LSU: (Try to) Hold that Tiger!

By Lara Boyko - March 26, 2007

The LSU team is dancing at center court to the sounds of their pep band.

The UConn team has left the court.

The LSU team just used hard work and good ju-ju to overcome scandal and distraction to get their seniors back to the Final Four for the fourth consecutive year.

The UConn team will take their pedigree into next season while LSU will take pieces away from their game net.

LSU's Fowles has a smile on her face that resembles the grin on a kid in a candy store. Of course she also did just do a kid-like expression when she stuck her tongue out at the ESPN camera, but hey, she just finished playing 39 minutes where she put the game away with her 23 points and 15 rebounds, so let's give her a break.

Sharing this championship spotlight for LSU is Ashley Thomas and Allison Hightower with 12 points a piece and Erica White with 11 points.

UConn's big plays cam from their little players of 5-foot-7 Renee Montgomery with 17 points and 5-foot-9 Mel Thomas with 13 points.

While former LSU coach Pokey Chatman may not be here in person tonight, I'm sure she is sitting somewhere with a smile on her face after watching her girls beat up on a UConn team that was over-matched.

This LSU team will proabaly party like it's Mardi Gras tonight as they just changed the story of the season to being the program that can overcome anything, from a coach passing away, two hurricanes, a scandal and last, but not least, a team with a pedigree that was favored.
