The Ole Miss Rebels and the LSU Tigers face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at Bridgestone Arena.
The Ole Miss Rebels faced off with South Carolina in the SEC tournament on Thursday, and they really had no issue getting the job done. Ole Miss was leading 41-26 at halftime, and they never looked back as they were able to win 76-59. Coming into this game they have won three games in a row and they hope they can heat up and make a run in the NCAA tournament. Ole Miss on the season is averaging 68.7 points per game while their defense is giving up 63.1 points per game. Ole Miss is shooting 44.2 percent from the field and 29.7 percent from behind the three point line. Devontae Shuler has been the best player for Ole Miss averaging 15.6 points while shooting 41.1 percent from the field and 34.5 percent from behind the three point line.
The LSU TIgers haven’t gotten as much attention as they probably deserve with how much success they have had so far this season. LSU currently sits with a 16-8 record overall and they have lost two games in a row. Inthe last game against Missouri, the offense was elite putting up 86 points, and that led to a six point victory. LSU on the season is averaging 82.7 points per game while their defense is giving up 75.4 points per game. LSU wants to push the pace and run up the score, Guard Cameron Thomas has been the best player for LSU averaging 23.1 points while shooting 41.6 percent from the field and 30.5 percent from behind the three point line.
LSU has zero interest in playing defense and that is going to be the case again in this one. Look for both teams to run up the score, and there will be very little defense by either side. Back the over to cash.
