LSU coach Matt McMahon hopes to build on upset win at Arkansas

New LSU men’s basketball coach Matt McMahon didn’t waste any time getting a big win in his first season on the Bayou.  The Tigers knocked off the No. 9 Arkansas Razorbacks 60-57 in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Wednesday night.

There were a lot of questions surrounding the LSU Tigers entering their first big conference game. The Tigers were 12-1 going into the game with their only loss coming to the Kansas State Wildcats in the championship game of the Cayman Islands Classic. LSU’s wins weren’t really against top competition.

So, how would the Tigers stack up with the Razorbacks? McMahon did a great job of making the Razorbacks play the way LSU wanted them to play. McMahon was asked what the win over Arkansas meant for the Tigers, and here is what he had to say.

“We kind of always go one game at a time,” McMahon said. “As boring and cliche as it is, the goal is to go 1-0. For us, we’re such a work in progress. We’re just trying to get better every day in practice. Every game. Obviously, the goal is to win while doing it. I hope it’s something we can continue to build on.”

Hopefully, the Tigers can build on that win as they take on the Kentucky Wildcats to start the new year.
