The LSU Tigers need all 40 minutes to defeat Florida and remain unbeaten in the Southeastern Conference.
A layup by Florida at the buzzer was waved off after replay. LSU’s 84-82 win was preserved, but only after a furious Gator rally.
LSU led 73-62 on a layup follow by Darius Days with just over 3 minutes to play, but Florida stormed back. With :05 remaining, LSU turned the ball over, allowing the Gators to run a perfect out of bounds play, that resulted in the tying basket.
Until replay said otherwise.
“They are a quality team, just like us,” said LSU guard Skylar Mays.
Emmitt Williams led LSU with 19 points. The Tigers outrebounded Florida by 10, 38-28. The Tigers had 15 offensive rebounds.
Florida made 11 three point baskets, LSU only 2.
LSU moved to 6-0 in the SEC, and 10-1 at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center this season.
