Basketball defeats Memphis behind Skylar Mays
Will Wade and the No. 22 ranked Tigers picked up an early resume building win on Tuesday night over Penny Hardaway’s new Memphis squad. LSU went on a 12-3 run in the final 3 minutes to seal the victory at the PMAC. “Our guys did a great job. They were 20-28 from the field with 25 rebounds. Emmitt and Days got 10 offensive rebounds between them,” said Wade after the game.
S. Mays: 19 points, 2 rebounds
N. Reid: 11 points, 5 rebounds
E. Williams: 11 points, 10 rebounds
Skylar Mays had the highlight of the night with a monster dunk. His poster slam would end up being No. 3 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays. Memphis was led by Tyler Harris, who recorded six three pointers in his 20 points night.
Next, the Tigers will host Louisiana Tech at 7 p.m. on Friday night.
