Waters’ game-winning layup sends LSU to Sweet 16
Matt Stamey – USA Today Sports
JACKSONVILLE — It feels like every game ends the same way, and for LSU, that hasn’t been the worst thing.
If you missed the game, this won’t surprise you: Tremont Waters hit a last-second layup to send LSU to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2006.
After a dominant first-half performance, Maryland threw out a zone on defense that the Tigers couldn’t figure out. LSU saw a 15-point lead dissipate and the Terps took their first lead of the game with 5:48 remaining in the 2nd half.
But, a clutch three-pointer from Skylar Mays and a game-winning layup from Tremont Waters leads the Tigers past Maryland, 69-67.
N. Reid: 13 points, 4 rebounds
S. Mays: 16 points, 4 rebounds
T. Waters: 12 points, 5 assists
The Tigers were 14-for-16 from the free throw line.
Next, LSU will await the winner of Michigan State/Minnesota at 7:45 p.m. ET. This post will be updated throughout the day. Stop by again for the full version.
