No. 3 national seed Tennessee (48-16) is hosting LSU (38-23) in the NCAA Tournament super regional June 12-14.
Ahead of Game 1, LSU head coach Paul Mainieri was introduced during the Tigers’ lineup at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.
Following the Vols sweeping LSU in a regular season series at home in March, Mainieri described Tennessee as a hostile environment.
“It was an extremely hostile environment,” Mainieri said. “Nasty fans, nasty. They were into Tre’ Morgan’s head. “I mean, they were on him from the moment he walked out on that field. It was a difficult situation.
“The umpires, there were a lot of calls that went against us, and they were having to deal with that. The other team was not handling things with a lot of class, quite frankly. It was an environment, that those kids were in for the very first time, and it was very difficult.”
