  1. Tickets How to buy tickets for UL's NIT basketball game at LSU

    UL will play a first-round NIT game Wednesday night at Baton Rouge; ticket information has been released by LA Athletics.



  2. UL Basketball LSU to host Louisiana in the N.I.T. Wed. at 6 p.m.

    Let the name games begin.

    Louisiana State, commonly known as simply LSU throughout the nation but not everywhere, will host the Ragin' Cajuns, which is getting to be known more and more commonly as simply_"Louisiana" in several national statistical listings and rankings and national networks, in a National Invitation Tournament commonly known as the NIT game at 6 p.m. Wednesday.___

    Or actually, the name games already have begun.

    Default Re: NIT

    Look's like Mr. Glenn "LSU" Guilbeau had a field day with the name game in his spread in the DA today. He wasn't quoting anyone either. This from is little fingers on his little key board. "Know by LSU throughout the nation, but not everywhere", meaning Cajun Land. He is bought and paid for and can't except that we are being excepted by most as "Louisiana".....

    It look's like Mr. Guilbeau and just a few others are the only one's who have not yet received the memo that Louisiana-Lafayette has branded their athletic programs as "Louisiana". It's really not that difficult (unless you want it to be)!!!

    First article in forever where an LSU writer leads with "Louisiana State."

    How COinkyDinky.


  6. UL Basketball I-10 NIT: Louisiana has what LSU has struggled against most of the season

    The Cajuns are tall and talented inside, and LSU has struggled against those teams this season.



  7. UL Basketball Questions aside, UL vs. LSU matchup fun

    When the shot came on the ESPNU screen that No. 6 Louisiana was playing at No. 3 LSU in the opening round of the NIT Tournament, it verified a few suspicions floating around in recent weeks.

    It also unearthed some frustrating old questions that don't have easy answers

    "Why is UL having to travel to LSU?"

    "Why_have UL and LSU only played four times since 1937 in men's basketball?"



  8. UL Basketball Excited vs Motivated

    The questions for invitees to the much more glittering and coveted NCAA Tournament are_easy. They are usually just, "When? Where?"

    For the off Broadway National Invitation Tournament, however, the usual question is more complicated._"Who really wants to play?"

    Sometimes that answer rests_with how close a team got to the NCAA Tournament, which gauges its disappointment and mindset entering the second line NIT.



  9. UL Basketball Bragging Rights For Life

    Johnathan Stove and Frank Bartley IV do not understand why it has taken so darn long.

    Bartley, a senior shooting guard and the Ragin' Cajuns leading scorer, has spent three seasons at UL, one as a redshirt after transferring in from BYU.

    Stove, a senior swingman, has played four seasons for the Cajuns.

  11. UL Basketball Marlin: 'Old-school guys think that LSU is better'

    On Wednesday night, the UL basketball team plays a first-round NIT game against LSU (in Baton Rouge)

    Why the 27-6 Ragin' Cajuns aren't playing the 17-14 Tigers at the Cajundome is something they seemingly cannot comprehend for the life of them, especially considering their much-better RPI rank of 63 vs. 94.
