LSU, the 5-seed in the SEC Tournament, will take on South Carolina around 8pm in Hoover, Al., in the first round, and single elimination round, of the tourney.
Before the team got on the bus for the trip, head coach Paul Mainieri had several key news/notes about the availability of a couple of his star pitchers.
The good news: talented freshman starting pitcher Cole Henry will start for the Tigers after sitting out his last four weekend opportunities.
The bad: another talented arm, Jaden Hill, will not see playing time in the SEC Tournament.
