LSU men lose to Alabama 74-66

Mg25jxppcmiptx3xd2ki

BATON ROUGE- The LSU men's basketball team dropped a close conference game against the Alabama Crimson Tide, 74-66, Saturday night in the Maravich Center. After winning just two road games all season past year, the Tigers are now 2-0 on the road on the back of a Waters steal and an over-the-head pass, and a jaw-dropping 30-foot three pointer. That comeback was scuttled when Wade, immediately after a Tremont Waters 3-pointer with 1:10 remaining, drew a technical foul for a lengthy harangue and apparent contact with the referee.

"They were able to get a couple of steals there at the end and we didn't take great care of the ball, but it's a good learning lesson for us".

Despite yet another change in playing rotation necessitated by Hall's injury and a slow shooting start by Sexton, who made just one of his eight first-half shots, the Crimson Tide held its own, blanking LSU over the final 3:20 of the half and taking a 32-30 lead at intermission.

Ingram, back in the starting lineup after a bout with the flu, led Alabama with a double-double, scoring 18 point and grabbing 10 rebounds, part of Alabama's 40-24 domination on the boards.

At one point, the Crimson Tide had to resort to playing five freshmen at the same time.

A key moment may have been with 1:10 remaining when LSU coach Will Wade, who was upset about a call at the other end of the floor on the previous possession, was called for a technical foul.

Collin Sexton, the SEC's leading scorer with an average of 19.5 points per game, missed his first seven shots but rebounded to score 15 points, making all six of his free throws, for the Crimson Tide (11-6, 3-2).

Brandon Sampson made a layup for LSU, but Ingram answered with a dunk.

UA then came out strong in the second half to build its lead to as many as 15 points before the frenzied finale.

The Tigers took that lead on an unusual play in which Daryl Edwards deflected Reese's pass.

Alabama, which hosts Auburn on Wednesday, outrebounded LSU 40-24. Daniel Giddens, a 6-11 sophomore transfer from Ohio State, started in his spot. In all, Alabama reserves outscored LSU's 28-11.

LSU: While the Tigers entered the game leading the SEC with a field goal percentage of 50.3, they looked uncomfortable shooting against Alabama most of the night.

No Tigers had double-figure points in the first half.

LSU will now get ready to play Georgia on Tuesday night at 6 PM.
