BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The LSU men's basketball team Sunday night was not selected for the 2013 National Invitation Tournament, thus putting the wrap on the 2012-13 LSU season.

The Tigers finished with a 19-11 overall record and 9-9 in the SEC. It was the second consecutive overall winning record and the non-losing record in the expanded 18-game league season was just the seventh for LSU since the start of the 1993-94 season.

The Tigers finished the season with a 1-1 mark in the Southeastern Conference Tournament, defeating Georgia in the second round and losing in the quarterfinals to Florida.

"Like a lot of other teams this time of year," said first year Coach Johnny Jones, "we are certainly disappointed that our season has come to an end and that our seniors have played their last game. But this will serve as a motivator for our returning players who will start preparing for next season immediately. We look forward to continuing to build the LSU Basketball program to be able to compete in the future at the highest level."

Jones' 19 wins this season marked the second most victories by a first-year LSU coach in the last 60 years. LSU won three road games in the SEC, had eight victories in games of five points or fewer and won three games coming from double figure deficits to turn the game around in the Tigers favor. The Tigers started 0-4 in the SEC and won 9-of-the-last-14 games to get back to .500 for the league season.
