Greetings from Greensboro
LSU and Duke are in the same hotel and they, along with their fans, have taken over the lobby the past few days. A few of the LSU staff members were also working out with the other mere mortals in the hotel gym this afternoon.
One thing learned in the gym -- LSU would rather see injured point guard Ty Lawson play for UNC today. Why? The Tigers want to beat the best when the best is at full strength. There's no change in status, though, according to a UNC spokesman. We'll all find out about Lawson when the starting lineups are handed out. LSU players said on Friday they've prepared for UNC as if it will have the ACC Player of the Year in the starting lineup.
