LSU Scandal Won’t Distract Tigers
… From Beating Duke

Think Zion and Duke will coast all the way to the title game without a hitch??? Here’s Shaq to make you second-guess your bracket picks … ’cause he says LSU CAN beat the Blue Devils — despite the Will Wade scandal.
The Tigers head coach was suspended indefinitely before the Big Dance … after Yahoo Sports recently reported that wiretapped conversations revealed Wade discussed making a “strong-ass” offer to a recruit.
Shaq clearly ain’t sweating the investigation possibly making an impact on LSU’s run at a title … simply saying, “Not a distraction.”
The Big Aristotle is probably right … ’cause the Tigers looked pretty good against Yale on Thursday … and all they have to do is win 1 more game to match up with the Devils (assuming Duke handles their opponents, of course).
But, with guys like Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish — 3 projected lottery picks in the NBA Draft in June — LSU’s going to have their hands full … scandal or no scandal.
