BATON ROUGE – LSU men’s basketball coach Johnny Jones will appear with ESPN basketball analyst Andy Katz on Friday night on a special 90-minute edition of Katz Corner on ESPNU beginning at 7:30 p.m. CT.
Jones will appear in the first half hour of the show in a segment of the show that will also include Jim Boeheim of Syracuse, Phil Martelli of St. Joseph’s and Craig Neal of New Mexico.

Jones is entering his third season as the head coach of the Tigers after winning 20 games last year and advancing to the second round of the NIT.
