LSU strengthens NCAA tourney seed despite loss to Oklahoma

(WVUE) -

Despite losing a heartbreaker to the top team in the country, Oklahoma on Saturday, LSU has moved up in ESPN's Bracketology.

Last week LSU was predicted as the last team in the NCAA Tournament, today they're a 10-seed. 

LSU won a mid-week game against Georgia, but blew a 14-point lead at home to the Sooners. Buddy Hield drilled seven three-pointers in the second half for Oklahoma to fuel a big comeback.

Joe Lunardi, who runs Bracketology, seeds the Tigers with Utah in Raleigh, NC.
