The LSU Tigers are getting a lot of love for the upcoming 2018-2019 college basketball season.

Yes, the season is still over five months away, but preseason polls are beginning to trickle out, and LSU is being listed in a few.


LSU, who finished 18-15 last season, is one of five SEC schools in the poll, joining Kentucky (#5), Tennessee (#6), Auburn (#11), and Mississippi St. (#14).

Kansas is #1 in the poll, followed by Gonzaga, Villanova, to round out the top five.

At 6-10, it's Tennessee, Virginia, Kansas St., North Carolina, and Virginia Tech.
