Outside of Andrew Steele, no one on the team shined, but it was enough to thwart a really bad LSU team. LSU got out to an early 7-0 lead in the first 5 minutes, built it up to 8, but we came back and took the lead at halftime (by 5). In the 2nd half we pounded it inside to Green to build the lead up to 10, but couldn't put LSU away until the last 2 minutes of the game. LSU got the lead down to 2 on a couple of occasions, but we responded with a bucket to keep them at bay.
We did do our job from the line (15-19) while LSU floundered (13-23), but our defensive intensity was not what we are used to seeing. Our offense once again was stagnant, depending on turnovers for easy scores.
I'm not sure what happenned to Hillman as I can't remember seeing him in the 2nd half. As for Charvez... it is now a fact he's a home court player. Start him at home, leave him on the bench on the road.
We only had 5 assists last night. It did seem like Releford struggled at times, but he'd also show flashes of brilliance driving to the hoop and scoring.
Like I said... it was an ugly game, but we won which is huge as it puts us in position (assuming we win out at home) to finish at 12-4 in the SEC and probably a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
