I remember sitting in the PMAC in early November watching LSU play an early exhibition game against EA Sports. At some point in the first half, Glen Davis made his first appearance on the court. This was the first time I'd seen the guy. I must admit that at the time I thought he was simply way too big to play heavy minutes in games.... Then within no time I saw him diving onto the floor for loose balls, getting a block here and there, slapping the ball away making steals. All the while, he did it all so gingerly. He never tired out and has continued that type of all out play all year. He's gotten into much better shape and has only continues to improve. Davis, along with the other four starters have all played more than the usual amount of minutes for typical starters at their level. Somehow they maintain their composure and compete day in and day out. People often speak about LSU's lack of depth as being a problem for the team. I tend to see it very differently. I see a solid group of well-conditioned starters that can play 35-40 minutes a game and not miss a step. Not many teams have these types of players. Most teams HAVE to use their bench players because the starters NEED to come out regularly. This could be an advantage for LSU in the upcoming tourney. I'll take LSU's starting five right now against anyone in the nation. The more those guys are able to stay on the court, the better. Note: That is not taking away at all from the quality minutes Neltner and Whipple give on a consistent basis. Those two guys are tremendous players and contributors to the team. Obviously though, they are not the starters. Also, I am wondering if anyone here is familiar with the basketball team's strength and conditioning program. Any details?
