Emmitt Williams sounds off on Will Wade & recent turmoil amidst NCAA Tournament run

Geaux Nation

LSU freshman forward, Emmitt Williams, hyped his teammates up for their most recent game in the SEC Tournament with, “…Coach Wade, bro; no matter what, that man still got our back!”

After the recent allegations about Will Wade and the LSU program, the Tigers have described themselves as ‘closer than ever before.’ Williams believes that, as well.

LSU will now face the test of ‘win or go home’ in the NCAA Tournament against their first opponent, Thursday, vs Yale.

Geaux Nation sat down with Williams to talk about his suspended head coach, the pressures of the upcoming NCAA Tournament, and about how the Tigers have used the recent headlines to band together.
