The LSU Tigers men’s basketball team looks to go two-for-two in upsets this week. After using a 20-3 run to knock off No. 13 Kentucky, focus shifts to the No. 18 Tennessee Volunteers.
LSU comes in at 13-1 with their only loss coming against the Auburn Tigers last week. The Vols are 10-3 and looking to hold off LSU twice in the next couple of weeks. Against the Wildcats, LSU was led by Tari Eason once again. In 30 minutes on the floor in the Kentucky game, the newcomer scored 13 points with six rebounds and three assists. The guard tandem of Brandon Murray and Xavier Pinson were the only other two in double-digits as far as points go.
The Vols are led by their backcourt duo of Kennedy Chandler (13.3/points per game) and Santiago Vescovi (13.5/points per game). Chandler is also leading the team in assists and steals this season. John Fulkerson is the big man down low that the Tigers must limit. He brings 9.5 points, six rebounds, and 1.4 blocks on a nightly basis.
According to ESPN’s matchup indicator, the Tigers’ win probability sits at 68.1%. The Tigers could be 14-1 before they head to Gainesville to take on the Florida Gators on Jan. 12.
