Waters said he grew up so close to Yale, "if I had a strong enough arm, I could probably throw a rock to Yale's basketball facilities." He also played AAU with two Yale players. Waters has 13 points and six assists in the first half. No LSU player has recorded 10 assists in an NCAA Tournament game since assists became official in 1984.

The story line going into LSU's first-round NCAA tournament game against Yale was whether the Tigers could put all the off-court distractions behind them.
