Unbelievable that we're the only one to beat LSU in conference this season. Unfortunately for us, they're playing a little bit better than the last time we met.
- 46% FG
- 38% 3PT FG
- 72% FT
- 8.2 steals
- 12.2 turnovers per game
You know their team by now... Thornton, Temple, Chris Johnson, and Mitchell give them plenty of offensive options... some of them we just don't have the bodies to cover. LSU as of now is the best in the SEC.
Prediction: we hang with them for 35 minutes then Thornton breaks our hearts with a three and Chris Johnson does his Shaq impression on the defensive end. LSU by 8.
SEC Power Poll
Week 5 edition (hosted by the Ghost of Chucky Blog). I had them ranked exactly like the final poll. I guess I am DA MAN!
Funny excerpt from the blog:
As a disclaimer for the week, our friends at the Georgia Sports Blog have a few words for SEC basketball fans:
"The Georgia Sports Blog hasn't been able to participate in the Poll so far this year due to not fielding an SEC Basketball Team. In the event that our status as a member of the league were to be re-instated with the hiring of a competent coach (or a traveling gypsy carnival maintenance man who believes in offense fundamentals), we will participate in future versions of the poll.
BTW -- Can I put Clemson in my SEC Power Poll? They looked liked the greatest team in the history of basketball last night....partially due to Duke's reflected suck and viewed through my own tainted lens of having just watched my own team play earlier in the evening.All praise Dancing Half-Time Girls in hot pants who soothe the tortured hoop fans' soul."
