NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -In a battle of unbeatens, LSU did enough to get past 18th ranked Ole Miss, on the Rebels home floor.
Guard Tremont Waters paced the Tigers with a game-high 20 points to lead the Tigers to an 83-69 win, their sixth straight victory and third in a row without defeat in the SEC.
After being deadlocked at 31 at the half, the Tigers went on a run midway through the second half to pull away from the Rebels. Kavell Bigby-Williams, Skylar Mays and Marlon Taylor all chipped in double-figures on the score sheet as the Tigers ran their record 12-3.
LSU will host South Carolina on Saturday.
