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

Any idea what our practice schedule has looked like during the break?

I think it was still pretty regular. I know coach said it was hard to keep everyone's concentration with such a long break, but that they were all getting good studying in. I'm assuming they still had daily practice. But Im not 100%.

Some more good basketball news; supposedly decreased the tradition fund required donation for basketball season tickets for next season. Yippee.

I'm just hoping that we take care of the ball tomorrow night. No turnovers or silly walking calls. Hopefully, O'Bryant has improved on passing out of double teams. He'll be doing that a lot this season.

Nice. I ended up getting two this year in a non-Tradition Fund area. Kind of regretting not just getting 1 in an area with donation required. I think I'll look into that next year.

I think it's a 5-10 pt game at half but Tigers roll in second half.

This worries me, Butler gave us fits largely because of this (and we didn't block out). I'm hoping Hickey and Stringer don't disappear like that one. Either way, I'm assuming we pull away in the 2nd like you said, South.

I am confident Jones corrected this in the last two weeks.

I'm confident he's corrected the blocking out. The having undersized guards thing is something we'll have to overcome throughout the year against teams with bigger guards. I'm confident we will, though.

I hope we blow them out early so that some of the other guys can get in the game. It was surprising to me that Coach Jones only gave 2 players off the bench any real playing time in the tournament. Coleman and Morgan came in and gave them a spark but no one else really got a shot.

I thought our depth was going to be a real plus for us this year. It seemed to me that our starting five were showing some fatigue in the Memphis game and definitely in the Butler game. Quarterman and Odo got a little bit of time in that one but not very much.

Hammink didn't make an appearance in any of the three games which was sort of telling. Johnny either thought he wasn't up to a big time game or just thought the matchup wasn't there although I would have liked to have seen if he could stop some of those Butler shooters and get some rebounds.
