LSU vs Southeastern OPENING NIGHT!


Recommended Posts

LSU still up over 30 points, but would've been much bigger but for some freshman coming off the bench for SELU.  Parker Edwards, North Shore kid comes off the bench and has scored 24 points in 7 minutes!  If he's on the court he's in range!  We have an amazing array of talent on our team this year, but man I wish we'd have found a spot for this kid!  He's on his way to 30 in less than 10 minutes playing time.  Game high and he was a bench warmer most of the game lol

LSU wins 94 to 63, lots of guys in double figures.  LSU goes 10 deep this year.  No depth issues for this team.  VERY athletic, pretty good ball control, good free throw shooting team, and shot over 50% for the night.  Good rebounders, especially on the offensive glass.  

Parker Edwards for SELU led all scorers with 25, got a PMAC standing O when he came out after just 10 minutes of play.  Oh, and he did finally miss one lol. 

Former pitcher Will Reese played for LSU tonight.  I vote we trade him for Edwards haha.  

Good opening win for LSU, gonna be a fun season to watch.

LSU's strong defensive night stifles Southeastern, 94-63

ByBILLY EMBODY 87 minutes ago 

BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU head coach Will Wade wanted a better defensive effort in Year 2 from his much-improved roster with Top 100 prospects, one of the top point guards in the country and more talented depth that he built in the offseason. The second-year coach of LSU saw just that for much of the season opener in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center Tuesday night.

LSU rolled against Southeastern Louisiana, 94-63, in a game that would have made the late Wayde Sims, who was honored with a ceremony and video tribute postgame, proud.

Freshman Naz Reid led LSU with 17 points while freshman Emmitt Williams (12), junior college transfer Marlon Taylor (15), junior Skylar Mays (11), freshman Darius Days (11) and freshman Ja'Vonte Smart(10) joined him in double figures for the evening. Williams also added seven of his 10 rebounds on the offensive end, as the Florida native earned a double-double in his first collegiate game in just 16 minutes.

LSU opened by not allowing a field goal until after the first TV timeout. More impressively, Southeastern hit a basket with 13:40 to play in the first half to close the gap to 15-9, but LSU's defense tightened up, holding the Lions without a field goal until 3:25 when Quinton Thomas hit a jumper. By that point, LSU led 42-16 and the game was out of hand.

In the first half, LSU led by as many as 30 in the first half as the Tigers entered the half with a 48-18 lead. That lead was extended to LSU's largest lead in the game to 40 points in the second half with 7:30 to play. The Tigers never trailed in the game.

Tremont Waters, a preseason All-SEC first-team selection, totaled nine points, five steals, three turnovers, two assists and a rebound in 23 minutes. LSU only had nine turnovers on the entire night.

The Lions were led by Mandeville, La. native and freshman Parker Edwards, who went for 25 points in just 10 minutes of play. Edwards, a St. Paul's product, hit 6-of-8 from three-point range and 5-for-7 from the free-throw line, all in the second half. Moses Greenwood also added 12 points for Southeastern.


LSU shot 48.5 percent from the field while holding Southeastern to 40.7 percent from the field overall, but outside of Edwards, held the Lions to 32 percent shooting from the field.
