LSU stats pack

For your reading pleasure. It's either that or a good way to cure insomnia.

LSU is coming off their 1st SEC win (at Auburn). Marcus Thornton put up 38 points including the game winning 3 to win at Auburn. That snapped a 15 game road losing streak.

With Chris Johnson out (I think he returns next week), Thornton and Anthony Randolph are the only scoring threats for the Bayou Bengals. They've been decimated with injuries. Still, they should be better and John Brady is probably on the hottest seat of any of the current SEC coaches.

Update- Chris Johnson is playing today... the game becomes harder to win.

The stats:
- 43% FG
- 32% 3PT FG
- 73% FT
- Rebound margin of -3.0
- 14 turnovers a game

Defensively:
- Allow 69.3 PPG
- 6.3 steals
- 14 turnovers per game

Prediction- Is this a let down game for us after the effort against the Vols? Can LSU sweep the road in Alabama. No... I fully expect us to win this game handily. Alabama led by Hendrix with another double-double by 15.

Gametime is 3PM EST on RAYCOM Sports (used to be LF Sports which used to be JP Sports). If you can't get to a TV then you can watch it on da in-ter-net for not $9.95, not even $5.95, but for FREE!

Wait, that's not all, you also get at no cost to you a way to cure insomnia by watching this game. That's a $49.95 value ABSOLUTELY FREE!
