LSU’s loss to Florida helps Vols in Championship Game

LSU’s loss to Florida helps Vols in Championship Game

"I think during the actual play, I was looking to attack the basket", Harper said. I'm glad he hit it.

The two teams previously met on January 9, which was Arkansas' SEC home opener. "He's worked his butt off and deserves it. Jalen and KeVaughn stepped up for us as well.Naz Reid is a handful, to complement the rest of their guys, Tremont Waters.We did just enough to beat a very good team".

"You win the SEC, regular season, I think we deserve a 2 (seed)", Benford said after No. 9 LSU dropped a nail-biter to Florida. LSU quickly squashed that idea with a statement noting Wade will remain suspended until he speaks to school officials about the reports of an Federal Bureau of Investigation wiretap that led to his suspension March 8, noting Wade has yet to "deny any wrongdoing to us or publicly".

The school said in a release that Smart had fully cooperated in a joint investigation between LSU and the NCAA.

Sure, the Tigers are the SEC regular season conference champions, but they're without their head coach.

The Tigers have covered in four straight following a win, but is just 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Saturday games.

Interim LSU head coach Tony Benford didn't shy away from his thoughts regarding the Tigers' potential NCAA Tournament future. Bryce Brown also chipped in 19 points with two assists for the Tigers in that one.

Johnson rebounded the missed free throw, got the ball to Hudson, who passed to Andrew Nembhard, who upset No. 9 LSU in the quarterfinals by hitting a 3 with a second left. Then Johnson found Nembhard for the winning 3. White credited the two freshmen with good decisions.

Head of the former National Front party - now National Rally (Rassemblement National), Marine Le Pen also condemned the attacks. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the attacks the "latest example of rising racism and Islamophobia".

"It's really hard to look at that stat sheet and explain an Auburn victory", Pearl said.

Nembhard said he had no time to do anything more than catch and shoot. My team is going to go as I go.

Nembhard led five Gators in double figures scoring with 20, while forward Keyontae Johnson had 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Naz Reid led the Tigers with 26 points including a pair of late-game three pointers that appeared to give LSU the edge in their quarterfinal match-up against the Gators. Smart finished with 13 points off the bench.

The freshman guard was held out of LSU's win over Vanderbilt to close the regular season and didn't learn until about 9:45 a.m. Friday that he could play again. Sports reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation intercepted a 2017 phone call between Wade and former Adidas consultant Christian Dawkins, where Wade was upset over a third party not accepting his "offer" regarding a recruit.

"Coach Will Wade has yet to deny any wrongdoing to us or publicly", Skinner said in the statement.

Auburn pulled ahead early in the second half and stayed in front thanks to Harper, who continually drew fouls driving to the basket and even once while attempting a 3-pointer. They went 2 of 15 (13.3 percent) in the first half outside the arc, a number made worse considering they shot more from the outside than inside the arc.

The Gators made it to line 26 total times and converted on 16 of those opportunities, and knocked down six triples in the second half.

LSU: The Tigers will have a complaint about the discrepancy in foul calls with 24 on LSU compared to 10 for the Gators. I was trying to get to the rim, see if I could create something for myself or somebody else.
