At last, victory

BATON ROUGE - Do not look for a sellout at the next LSU men's basketball game or a parade, but finally the Tigers pulled one out. The 81-80 victory at Auburn Wednesday night was LSU's first win of 2008. And do not be that surprised if LSU's "winning streak" stretches to two.

Alabama, where LSU plays Saturday at 2 p.m., is about as bad as LSU. The Crimson Tide is tied with LSU for last in the SEC West at 1-5. Alabama does not play very good defense and is not a very good rebounding team. LSU plays good defense and is also not a very good rebounding team. Alabama can score. LSU struggles to most of the time, unless guard Marcus Thornton can put up 38. It should be a good game.

Unfortunately, after that game, LSU hosts Tennessee, goes to Florida, hosts Kentucky and goes to Arkansas. Unless it wins Saturday, it might not win a game for some time.

The team at least thinks it has a chance. And though so many people want coach John Brady fired and fired now, he should at least be given the opportunity to finish out this season. At this point, he deserves that much.
