Scouting Report


This game features LSU’s No. 2 scoring offense in the SEC versus A&M’s No. 2 scoring defense. LSU (10-5, 19-9 SEC) has been in somewhat of a tailspin since losing to Vandy a few weeks ago. The Tigers are still almost certain to make the NCAA Tourney field. A&M, on the other hand, probably needs to win out the regular season and then win two or three in the SECT to make the Big Dance. This game is being played in Baton Rouge so probably your best bet is to go with the Tigers to win this one. LSU rebounds really well and has a lot of weapons, like Skylar Mays who is one of the best shooters in the country. Watch out for Texas A&M (8-7, 14-13) though, they are playing way better than many thought they would at this point. Josh Nebo is a beast inside and could thwart some things that the Tigers do well.
