LSU had control of the game. 22 point lead. Coach Wade trying out different lineups. SIU closed the gap to 9 at one point. This was a good opener for the Tigers. Thomas should be fun to watch.

Good first game! The stars were shining. But we will need to tighten up that perimeter defense.

Actually different problem. Last year we couldn’t fight through a screen to contest an open shot. Last night we got lulled to sleep or but on a stab and left the perimeter player open.

I see that trademark, tough Wade defense is back, giving up only 81 points.
