LSU Basketball drops SEC Opener at Auburn

Auburn, Al. - LSU started its SEC play with a strong first half against the Auburn Tigers but could not finish off the effort, losing 68-63 in first year head coach Johnny Jones' conference debut.

Guards Charles Carmouche, Andre Stringer, and Anthony Hickey all had double-digit scoring but the Tigers only got 12 points from four bench players and ultimately, their lack of depth cost them as Auburn went on a 16-2 run in the second half to put the game out of reach.

The Tigers finished strong with a 13-4 run to end the game but it was not enough.  LSU returns home to face Florida Saturday at 1 p.m.

    The college football season starts in less than a 100 days, but Vegas already is weighing in on how the 2018 season  will play out. College football win totals from Vegas are out. #LSU over/under on wins in 7. I say they get more than 7. #Tulane is at 5.5 wins, I say the Wave get 6. Least shocking, they have #Alabama at 11 wins. The Tide will be in contention for a national title with Tua at QB. pic.twitter.com/rqCcr7wC3H — Garland Gillen (@garlandgillen) May 27, 2018 ...more>>
