What to Know

The LSU Tigers will face off against the Bowling Green Falcons at 8 p.m. ET on Friday at Pete Maravich Assembly Center. LSU was 26-6 last season and made it as far as the sweet sixteen before being knocked out by the Michigan State Spartans 80-63. Bowling Green was 22-12 last year and is coming off of a 94-73 win against the Tiffin Dragons.

A couple last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: LSU was 19th best (top 5%) in points per game, finishing the 2018 season with 80.4 on average. Bowling Green was not quite as good, but they were no chumps, either: they ranked 21st in college basketball in points per game, closing the year with 78.5 on average (top 9%). We'll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the contest.

The Tigers have the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
