First, LSU stats pack. They might be playing as bad as we are right now... although they almost beat UGA on the road. They've lost 3 in a row.
I'll skip the 'who to watch' for LSU as most of you should know already. We need Hendrix to continue his 2nd half against Arkansas, Gee and Riley to find their range, Hollinger and Steele to take care of the ball, and Davidson to set screens and pretend to play inside. Also, I'd really like to see more PT for Jemison and Tubbs... after their solid 2nd half against Arkansas they deserve it (I think both should start, but that's just me... and quite a few others).
LSU is ripe for another home loss... Vandy took them down last week and they did fall to Wichita State early in the year so it's a winnable game. The problem is it's on the road. I wonder if they'll let us wear our home whites.
Prediction- the only prediction I'll make is the loser of this game should plan for the NIT. The winner still has some work to do.
- Georgia Tech is as disappointing as we are so far. They should be better.
- Digger Phelps gets on my last nerve.
- The Big East is really down this year. Pitt is the only realistic contender for a title. I'd say the SEC is better, but really it's Florida and a bunch of mediocre teams.
- PAC-10 basketball is fun to watch this year. They might get 6 in the NCAA tournament.
Gametime is 9PM EST (8PM CST) on LFN.
