LSU hasn't scored 92 in an SEC game in 9 years as they defeated the Bulldogs 92-81. LSU ran out of the gate leading 24-4 minutes into the contest. Mississippi State had no answer for LSU's big men.

Jarell Martin had his best game as a Tiger. He scored 20 points on 8 of 11 shooting. He had 8 rebounds along with two assists, no turnovers, and a steal.

Jordan Mickey scored 19, mainly from the free throw line where he went 11/12. He added 4 rebounds, 3 assists, two blocks and three steals.

O'Bryant was quiet on the scoring front, but he did have 6 rebounds, 5 assists and only 1 turnover. Shavon Coleman had another great game playing from the perimeter. He scored 18 points and had 4 steals, two assists, and two rebounds.

LSU also had Anthony Hickey and Andre Stringer in double figure scoring with 13 and 14 points. The duo made 6 of 11 three pointers to help lead LSU to a 43% three point shooting night.

Still, it was a Bulldog that stole the show. LSU allowed a career game for sophomore PG Craig Sword. He scored 33 points, had 3 assists, 3 steals, and a block before fouling out late in the game. He is one of the many larger guards to pick LSU apart this season.

Mississippi State never held a lead in this one, but made the result hazy a few times with runs. For the game, Mississippi State shot 52% from inside the arc and 38% from three point range; both far above their averages. LSU did outrebound the Bulldogs 34-30. The Tigers also had a 17:16 Ast:TO while forcing Miss St into an abysmal 8:16.

LSU takes on Kentucky on the road Saturday so let's hope LSU has some road magic up their sleeves.
