As we begin our 2011-2012 season, we look to our teamwork, dedication, hard work and most importantly our faith in God, as we strive to defend our Pacific Coast Athletic Conference (PCAC) Championship Title!

 To achieve this goal, we have the talented play of Conference MVP, Daveon Woods (JR), 1st team all conference Miles Robbins (SR), along with 2nd Team all Conference Connor Madden (SR). We also have the leadership of are other seniors, DePaul Williams, Aaron Snyder and Joshua Zonker. We have 9 returning players from our 2010-2011 Championship teams. Along with these returners, we have added talented new student-athletes that will indeed strengthen our team!

 In December, our program looks to demonstrate all aspects of our game by participating in the NCAA Division I, Loyola Marymount and Fresno Pacific Tournaments. We also play our cross town rival NCAA Division II, Cal Baptist University, which over the last 3 years has shown to be a game you don't want to miss!! These venues will prepare us for conference play that begins with our Northwest road trip in January. We end our season at home with conference play in February, which is sure to be an exciting finale to our regular season! With every game we play in the regular season, we strive to reach our goal to compete in post season play at the NAIA National Tournament!!

 The LSU Men's Basketball team is excited to get the season rolling and make LSU proud! We are blessed and appreciate the support and school spirit that the students, family, friends, faculty and staff have shown through the seasons. We look forward to seeing you cheer us on again this season!! God Bless and GO EAGLES!!!
