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.
