No. 10 seed LSU opens up the SEC Tournament by playing No. 7 seed Mississippi State on Thursday night at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, MO.

Tip-off is set for 6:00 p.m. CT and will be televised on the SEC Network. The winner will go on to face No. 2 Tennessee in the quarterfinals on Friday night. Per LSUSports.net:

This is a replay of the game from this past Saturday when LSU was a 78-57 winner over the Bulldogs. In fact, it will be the second straight year that Mississippi State has played LSU in the finale (last year in Starkville) and then in the SEC Tournament (last year in the first round when LSU was the 14 seed and MSU the 11 seed).

Last year in the tournament, State ended LSU’s season with a 79-52 thumping as LSU was 1-of-22 from the arc (4.5%) and Mississippi State had a 32-8 advantage in points off turnovers.

But in this year’s first meeting in Baton Rouge that concluded the regular season with LSU winning six straight SEC home games, LSU led by five at the half and continued to build the lead in the second half, making 14-of-25 field goals including 7-of-14 from the arc. Complete Preview.

Typical TD staff reporter can't even get something as simple as a tip off time correct. It is literally printed on the bracket right above where you typed out it's a 6:30 tip
