What they’re saying about LSU Tigers

“While LSU is the only team in the SEC that has yet to suffer a conference loss, the Tigers have had several near misses the past two weeks. LSU’s last three wins have been by a combined seven points. Against Arkansas, Trendon Watford gave LSU the go-ahead basket with eight seconds to play; three days later, Skylar Mays hit a buzzer-beater shot just inside the three point line to put LSU past Mississippi State; and on Tuesday in College Station, LSU blew a 16-point first half lead and needed overtime to fend off Texas A&M.”

What they’re saying about Ole Miss

The question for Ole Miss will be the health of Breein Tyree and Khadim Sy. Both Tyree and Sy missed the Florida game and the shorthanded Rebels could only muster 54 points against the Gators. Tyree is Ole Miss’ leading scorer with 17 points a game and shoots 35 percent from three. Sy, another starter for Ole Miss, stands at 6’10” and provides a significant post presence for the Rebels.
