Tide downs Bayou Bengals 81-72

I thought we played pretty solid defense throughout and moved the ball better than I've seen in a long time.

Box score

The Good:
- Hendrix with another double-double
- Gee played under control
- Defensively we held LSU to 37% from the field
- Balanced scoring

The bad:
- Never put LSU away when we had the chance. Credit them for not giving up, but we should've put the game away much earlier
- Hillman not converting that 360 dunk. That would've brought the house down. LSU made a mini-run on us after that miss.

I'm still perplexed by substitution patterns and not getting a certain player in the game until the 2nd half. I'll take the win and hope the improvements we saw today continue throughout the rest of the year.
