    Bootin' Up in España

    A special summer episode of Boot Up, as LSU wraps up its August practice sessions before heading to Spain for its once-every-four-years international summer trip.

    First, we break down the new roster, including the newcomers for the Tigers, as well as the growth of the veterans. Will Wade talks playing smaller and faster, developing a motion offense, and building a team identity before and during the Spain trip. 

    After that, we sit down with LSU guards Javonte Smart and Skylar Mays, the Tigers' Bayou Backcourt. Skylar and Javonte give an overview of the new and returning faces on the roster, talk about growing in Baton Rouge and representing LSU, and preview the trip to Spain.
