    Interesting analysis...containing a number of points that bode well for LSU:

    Tourney winners in recent years are:

    -Younger
    -Have frontcourts as strength of their team
    -Have experienced coaches
    -Can win close ballgames

    and, most surprising to me,

    -Get the majority of their points/minutes from their starters

    I'm still very worried about depth, but if an upset or two greases the skids for LSU to get to the Sweet 16, they may match up better with likely Sweet 16, Elite 8 opponents than you might think (given conventional wisdom that deep benches and strong backcourts beat all later in the Tourney).
