The Tigers got the win in Matt McMahon’s debut on Wednesday night, taking down Kansas City 74-63 in a game that was a bit too close for comfort.
Now, LSU will welcome Sun Belt foe Arkansas State to the PMAC on Saturday evening. The Red Wolves began the year with an 86-55 win over Harding, but this will be their first major test of the season.
ASU is led by sixth-year coach Mike Balado, who finished last season 18-11 before his team lost in the quarterfinals of the Sun Belt tournament. Arkansas State ranks just No. 184 in the NET.
Here’s everything you need to know to follow this one, which is set to begin at 5 p.m. CT in Baton Rouge.
