BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The LSU men's basketball team, off its biggest win of the season over No. 17 Missouri Wednesday, now tries to take that same intensity on the road Saturday when the Tigers face the Mississippi State Bulldogs at Humphrey Coliseum.
LSU is 11-7 overall and 2-5 in the league after wins the last two Wednesday nights at the Maravich Center. Mississippi State is 7-12 and also 2-5 in the league but the Bulldogs have lost five straight after winning their first two conference games.
The Tigers beat a ranked SEC team for the first time since knocking off No.3 Florida in Baton Rouge in February 2007 and did it grand style as Missouri never led in Wednesday's contest. Anthony Hickey had 20 points for the Tigers, while Andre Stringer moved into a tie for 10th all-time at LSU for career three-pointers made (141) with four treys and 18 points.
