LSU 61 ULM 54 Final

Who: LSU Tigers (5-2) vs Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks (3-1) (Colors: Maroon & Black)
Where: PMAC (13,215, 47th largest NCAA)
When: Saturday, December 14th - 7:00pm central time
How to Watch:TV: CST, Radio: 98.1FM, Web: GeauxZone

Well the 12 day break from action is almost complete and it can't come soon enough. With Football and Basketball on break, the lull has been nearly unbearable, however, LSU Hoops gets back on the hardwood Saturday to play in-state foe UL-Monroe. While Monroe isn't a brand name team, they have played some good basketball this season.

In their season opener they lost to #5 Kansas. Since then they have won three straight, including an overtime win against Northwestern St (LSU beat NWSU 88-74). LSU's last game was a big win against Butler to capture 3rd place at the Old Spice Classic.

The Tigers face a team who has played exceptional defense this season. They are third in the NCAA in 3 point defense and on offense they shoot nearly 55% from inside the arc. They have scored over 1 point per possession in half of their games while LSU has scored over 1 point per possession in all but one of theirs.

LSU should be able to win this game, however, UL-Monroe does play some tall guards. The warhawks play 7 players over 6'6". I would guess LSU to be about a 16 point favorite in the game, and any win over 20 points would be a very good showing.

Coach Jones said Jarell Martin is still not 100% but has given hard minutes. Jordan Mickey has continued to impress everyone and was even in a recent mock draft graded as a mid second rounder (Along with JOB and Martin). O'Bryant looks to continue his success scoring and rebound while limiting his turnovers. Decreasing his turnovers should be his top priority.

Prediction:

LSU 85, ULM 60

I have a feeling we will lose a close game because of free throws at some point this year.



Mickey is money though. Pretty sure he's shot the most FTs and he has a great %.

Proud of how my Injuns played vs LSU tonight. Bring on the SUN BELT.


Coach Richard's bunch should be greatly improved in the Sun Belt, Williams, Olatayo, and James are players, they have some length, speed, rotate the ball well together, hustle,etc..

They played hard tonight..just had no answer for Jordan Mickey.

Hope ULM has a huge turnaround this year.

The free throw shooting has to improve. 53%? :casty:

And if you take out Mickey's 7-9, the rest of the team was 3-10.

i expect a slow start after a break, I dont really expect a 18 point lead to be shite down to 7. I did like how well TQ was playing early in the game. We need to keep attacking the hoop, I like this teams ability to get open shots. I still want to see more pressing out of them and id like to see this hot and cold shite become less and less.

Yeah free throws, turnovers, just sloppy play. We have a lot of individual talent but aren't jelling as a team. I'm sure the coach is going to let them know about it in tomorrow's practice. Really disappointed with everyone but especially Darcy and the other scrubs as they let the game get away from them.

kind of game you'd expect off a long lay off. winning the next two will be big for this team. tech sucks but its an awkward road trip and uab is a good team and beat unc earlier in the year.
