After an 81-70 victory over McNeese St on Friday night, the LSU Tigers play in the opening round of the Legends Classic as a regional host in the PMAC. The Tigers were led by their freshman with Blakeney (22pts, 10rebs) and Ben Simmons (11pts, 13rebs, 5ast) each recording double-doubles and Brandon Sampson tallying 18 points. Kennesaw State were losers in Tuscaloosa on Friday dropping a game to Alabama 77-64.

Projected Starters:

LSU Tigers (1-0)

#55 Tim Quarterman (6'6" 190 Jr) 11pts, 6rebs, 3:1ast/to
#0 Brandon Sampson (6'5" 186 Fr) 18pts, 3rebs
#2 Antonio Blakeney (6'4" 190 Fr) 22pts, 10rebs, 1:0ast/to
#25 Ben Simmons (6'10" 240 Fr) 11pts, 13rebs, 5:3ast/to, 2blks
#3 Elbert Robinson (7'1" 290 So) 8pts, 4rebs

Kennesaw St Owls (0-1)

#4 Yonel Brown (5'9" 160 Sr) 40Min/gm, 34pts, 10rebs, 1:5ast/to
#0 Kendrick Ray (6'1" 180 Jr) 17pts, 5rebs
#21 Nick Masterson (6'5" 180 So) 0pts, 1reb
#1 Nigel Pruitt (6'7" 180 Sr) 1pts, 2rebs
#14 Aubrey Williams (6'6" 225 Jr) 6pts, 12rebs

The first thing you notice in Kennesaw St is the game Yonel Brown had last week. The 5'9" senior played every minutes and scored 34 and grabbed 10 rebounds. LSU will try and use their length to keep the small guard from scoring at a pace like that.

LSU outrebounded McNeese 46-39 and will try and continue to dominate the boards against a much smaller Owls team.

Prediction:

LSU 1.2PPP
Kennesaw St 0.9PPP
Possessions 73


LSU 88
Kennesaw St 66
