The No. 19 LSU Tigers take Lousiana Tech on Saturday night. It will be the toughest test for the unbeaten Tigers this season. Lousiana Tech is 8-2 early in the season.
LSU has been winning with tough defense; right now, they have one of the top defenses in the country. In years past, LSU was known for offense and mediocre defense. They only allow teams to shoot 25.7% from beyond the arc. Tari Eason and Darius Days lead the Tigers in scoring. Eason is averaging 15.8 and Days 14.6 points per game.
The Bulldogs come into the game lacing, size, which hurts them on the boards and rebounding. But Louisana Tech does an excellent job of not turning over the ball. The Bulldogs will need to make this a fast-paced game to have a chance.
Lousiana Tech is led by Kenneth Lofton Jr., the son of former baseball player Kenny Lofton. The younger Lofton averages 19.1 points and 11.1 rebounds per game. He will need to have a huge game to pull off the upset.
