Tigers Not Competitive

LSU basketball head coach Trent Johnson claims his team has not been competing the last few games. The Tigers have lost the last two contest by a combined 65 points. Jim Kleinpeter of the Times Picayune has more.

LSU’s recent struggles in the last two games aren;t about winning and losing, LSU coach Trent Johnson said.It’s about competing.

The Tigers lost by 38 at Kentucky and 27 at home against Ole Miss to take the shine off a 2-0 start in SEC play. Johnson said he expects his team to raise it’s level when they play at Tennessee Wednesday.

“I fully expect us to compete very, very hard Wednesday,” Johnson said Monday. We need to get off the deck and compete as a higher level.

“It’s unacceptable. We’re not talking about the winning and losing. We’re talking about the competing.”

I would not expect a Tiger win in Knoxville tomorrow night. Judging from his words, Trent Johnson may not expect a victory either, but he certainly hopes for a better effort. Several players expressed embarrassment after the last two performances. One way to make amends is to show some semblance of competing.
