Coach Jones defends decision not to play in the NIT
Posted on 3/15/2016 5:45:00 PM.
LSU men's basketball Johnny Jones stands by his decision to reject an opportunity to play in the NIT. Jones says a season-ending injury to Keith Hornsby and an illness to shooting guard Antonio Blakeney would have made it a tough to put a competitive team on the court.
"You never really want your season to end, and with these guys, I've got to always make sure I'm doing what's in the best interest of our players at the end of the day for them as we always move forward, and sometimes that's not a popular decision," Jones said.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has decided to postpone a vote on Republicans' legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, after concluding he does not have the votes to pass the bill this week before the chamber goes on recess for the 4th of July holiday. Several large patient and hospital groups, including the AARP and American Medical Association, have expressed skepticism about the draft legislation when it was first released last week in the Senate, but ramped up their opposition to the bill after the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) presented its formal analysis on Monday.
