FINAL: LSU – 60, Georgia – 61
Another tough loss to swallow for Will Wade and an LSU basketball squad who seems to be squandering very winnable games recently. It was a tale of two halves. The Tigers came out of the gates with a combination of hot shooting and aggressive play on the offensive and defensive boards. LSU led Georgia 34-24 going into halftime.
LSU was led for most of the night by junior guard Brandon Sampson, who scored a team-high 17 points. The Tigers shot 33.3% from deep; however, did lose the battle on the glass 38-27.
Freshman standout Tremont Waters had one of his least productive games yet, scoring only 6 points with 2 turnovers. Waters did, though, have a shot to win as the buzzer sounded on Tuesday night.
With tonight’s loss at the Maravich Center, LSU falls to 11-6 on the season and 2-3 in conference play. The Tigers will travel to Vanderbilt on Saturday for a 1 p.m. tip on SEC Network.
