Florida @ LSU
Current Records: Florida 8-7; LSU 12-3
What to Know
The Florida Gators have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. The Gators and the LSU Tigers will face off in an SEC battle at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday at Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Florida should still be riding high after a victory, while LSU will be looking to get back in the win column.
Florida beat the Georgia Bulldogs 82-75 this past Saturday. Florida got double-digit scores from five players: guard Kyle Lofton (18), guard Will Richard (14), guard Myreon Jones (13), forward Colin Castleton (12), and guard Kowacie Reeves (12). Myreon Jones' performance made up for a slower game against the Texas A&M Aggies last Wednesday. Jones' points were the most he has had all year.
Meanwhile, LSU received a tough blow this past Saturday as they fell 69-56 to A&M. One thing holding the Tigers back was the mediocre play of guard Cam Hayes, who did not have his best game: he finished with ten points on 4-for-11 shooting in his 25 minutes on the court.
Barring any buzzer beaters, the Gators are expected to win a tight contest. The odds have been favorable for them against the spread on the road this season, even if it's been tough sledding overall. They are 2-0 ATS in away games but only 6-9 all in all.
When the two teams previously met in January of last year, Florida was in the race but had to settle for second with a 64-58 finish. Can they avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
