BATON ROUGE – LSU Basketball Director of Student-Athlete Development and former Tiger Tasmin Mitchell will be the guest Thursday for Coach Will Wade’s December Tipoff Luncheon presented by UPS at L’Auberge Hotel and Casino Baton Rouge.
The monthly gatherings for good food and basketball conversation are open to the public.
Mitchell is in his second year on the LSU staff after an illustrious college career at LSU in which he played on two SEC Championship teams – the NCAA Final Four team of 2006 and as well in 2009. This is the 10-year anniversary of that 2009 squad and Mitchell will give us a few memories of that season and more.
Also on the program will be LSUsports.net digital reporter Cody Worsham who will discuss his new basketball podcast “Boot Up.”
The event will be held at the Bon Temps Buffet. The Buffet is available at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at 12:10 p.m. The all-you-can-eat buffet is located on the ground floor of the hotel in the casino area.
To get to the L’Auberge Hotel and Casino Baton Rouge from the LSU area, follow LA-30N./Nicholson Drive. Turn onto L’Auberge Crossing Drive and follow the signs to L’Auberge Baton Rouge.
Other dates in early 2019 for the monthly luncheons will be January 3, February 7 and March 7.
