watched all of this game (first game of the year actually) i love how intense the Tigers look on the glass, stretching other teams out well. The defense has some lapse that keep them from pulling away last night. Wade has him a squad this year..keep it up!

After three 2 point losses this season, we finally get a close one. This team is so close to having only 1 loss on the season. If only we had a little more age. All that being said, Wade always gets it together come SEC play.

How about the two blocks within like 2 seconds of each other by the same player off the bench to close it out!! Those tigers fought last night!

Watford deserves a lot of credit for those back to back “and 1’s” in the final minute. Well done, young man.

almost makes me forget that failed dunk attempt.

The ending of the first half may have been the juice they needed to push through the second. Great comeback and effort. Geaux Tigers.
