FINAL: LSU 82, Georgia 93.

The Tigers had no answer for Georgia forward Yante Maten, who finished with a season-high 27 points, 11 rebounds and 6 blocks. The Bulldogs totaled eight blocks in the first half alone and would finish the game with nine. The Tigers were out-rebounded, 49-34.

If it weren’t for Tremont Waters, the Tigers’ loss would have been

much uglier. The freshman star, by himself, kept this game at

a respectable margin, scoring 25 points with 3 assists. Senior

forward Duop Reath suffered foul trouble for most of the night and Skylar Mays played one of his toughest games, netting 11 points.

Will Wade and the Tigers must win out if they want to be in any NCAA Tournament conversation. In fact, they may even need to make some noise in the SEC Tournament. For more on LSU Basketball, follow us on Twitter @InsideLSU/@HValentineLSU.
