Jones officially out at LSU

The LSU basketball team will part ways with head basketball coach Johnny Jones, athletic director Joe Alleva announced today.

The move comes after one of the worst seasons in LSU basketball history. The Jones-led Tigers finished 10-21 in 2016-17 with a 2-16 record in SEC play that included a school-record 15-game losing streak that spanned most of January and all of February. The Tigers were eliminated from the SEC tournament in the first round Wednesday by a Mississippi State team that beat the Tigers three times this year.
