BATON ROUGE - The LSU men's and women's basketball teams and head coaches Johnny Jones and Nikki Caldwell met with students at the 2012 LSU Basketball Block Party Monday on Tower Drive near Free Speech Alley.

The event allowed students to meet the coaches and visit with the players as the teams prepare for the start of the 2012-13 season. The women open their exhibition season on Thursday at 7 p.m., while the men play an exhibition game on Monday, Nov. 5, at 7 p.m. Admission to all exhibition games are free.

The students got an opportunity to shoot around on a portable court and free popcorn and sodas was given out. The LSU Sports Network Tiger One trailer was on hand as well as the LSU Cheerleaders, the Tiger Girls and Mike the Tiger.

Season tickets for both programs as well as mini-plans are available online at
