LAFAYETTE (KLFY) – The Louisiana men’s basketball team is going dancing in Orlando, Florida after winning the Sun Belt Conference championship. The Ragin’ Cajuns, a 13-seed, will face fourth-seeded Tennessee at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida with tip-off scheduled for 8:40 p.m. CT on Thursday, March 16 on KLFY.
