I am swamped at work, but I thought I'd make a thread dedicated to the game today at noon. I will be able to update and take part in the in-game thread, but I have to get my work done till then.
LSU plays #1 seed Florida. It will be interesting to see what Florida comes out with. They only play 7-8 people so they aren't very deep and with their ticket already booked for the big dance, it will be interesting if they come out 100% looking to win this.
LSU played a fantastic first half against UGA before coasting to a 5 point victory in the second half. Coleman had a career day, but O'Bryant missed about 50 free throws and Carmouche was nearly invisible. His injury is definitely still looming.
Tigers had a good game from Stringer and LSU is now 10-0 when Hickey has 5 or more assists. Florida had a bye so this will be there first game in 6 days.
Look for LSU to try and force more turnovers like they did in the first half yesterday. LSU had a season low 5 turnovers yesterday and will need to continue to take care of the ball if they plan on beating the top seeded Gators.
LSU 65, Florida 75
-While LSU's chances are not great, if Florida plays flat, LSU could take advantage. It's tournament time and this is LSU's MARCH MADNESS. Should be a great game. Pat Dooley ?@pat_dooley
Murphy's not out there. A Gator fan just told me he heard he hurt his knee in shootaround
If Erik Murphy isn't able to go, it would be a really big setback for the Gators.

Oops, there's Murph. Someone told me he hurt his knee. But he's stretching now
