What to Know

The #19 LSU Tigers won both of their matches against the Texas A&M Aggies last season (77-54 and 78-66) and are aiming for the same result on Wednesday. LSU and A&M will face off in an SEC battle at 9 p.m. ET at Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.

On Saturday, the Tigers lost to the Tennessee Volunteers on the road by a decisive 64-50 margin. One thing holding LSU back was the mediocre play of forward Darius Days, who did not have his best game: he played for 26 minutes but put up just five points on 2-for-10 shooting.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for A&M as they fell 76-73 to the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday. Guard Wade Taylor IV put forth a good effort for the losing side as he shot 5-for-8 from beyond the arc and finished with 25 points. Taylor IV's performance made up for a slower matchup against the Kentucky Wildcats last week. Taylor IV's points were the most he has had all season.

LSU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 9.5-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread on Saturday might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 15-4. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Tigers come into the game boasting the sixth most takeaways per game in college basketball at 18.4. The Aggies are completely their equal: they also come into the game with 18.4 takeaways.
