What to Know
The LSU Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs are set to clash at 9:30 p.m. ET March 8 at Bridgestone Arena in the first round of the Southeastern Conference Tourney. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'
The game between the Tigers and the Florida Gators this past Saturday was not particularly close, with LSU falling 79-67. LSU's defeat came about despite a quality game from forward KJ Williams, who had 19 points along with nine rebounds.
Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were within striking distance but couldn't close the gap this past Saturday as they fell 61-55 to the South Carolina Gamecocks. Guard Terry Roberts (14 points) and center Braelen Bridges (12 points) were the top scorers for UGA.
Barring any buzzer beaters, LSU is expected to win a tight contest Wednesday. But bettors beware: they are only 3-8 against the spread when favored.
A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: LSU has only been able to knock down 41.40% percent of their shots, which is the 22nd lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. UGAs have had an even harder time: they have only been able to knock down 41.10% percent of their shots, which is the 13th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It could be a slow night.
