Tremont Waters. What could you have possibly been thinking?
With momentum on the Tigers’ side, LSU had the ball up 1 with 30 seconds left. With the crowd on its feet, Tremont Waters heaves a 25-foot alley-oop to Marlon Taylor with the game on the line and, as it should be, gets intercepted. The Hogs would go down the floor and lay in the game-winning two points.
N. Reid: 19 points, 10 rebounds
J. Smart: 18 points, 3 rebounds
S. Mays: 17 points, 3 steals
“I want to thank all our fans. They were awesome. They almost willed us back. That’s as loud as I’ve heard the arena since I’ve been here,” said Wade postgame.
Next, LSU travels to Mississippi State on Wednesday for an 8 p.m. tip on SEC Network. (This game feed will be updated shortly)
