Skylar Mays adds 13.4 a game and Naz Reid scores 13.2 a game. Ja’vonte Smart rounds out the 4 with 10.6 per game. Emmitt Williams is the leading rebounder with 6.1 per game. The Tigers have nobody who is shooting above 40% from 3-point range and are shooting and are shooting 47.2% from the field on the season.

Bulldogs Keep Wins Coming
Mississippi St comes in at -2.5. The key factor in this one will be the home court advantage. This crowd will be reared up and ready go. Even though LSU has been great on the road this season, they have not beaten a team that is higher than 8th in the SEC on the road. I think Quinndary will have an incredible game and the Bulldog offense will be able to score relatively easily against a not-so-great LSU defense, and the Bulldogs have averaged 85.5 a game at home. Take Mississippi St -2.5.
