LSU will host Marquette Monday night at the PMAC. Marquette is currently the 11th ranked team in the country, which will be LSU’s biggest test of the season. If the past few years are any indicator to how LSU will play then they should lose…bad. Since 2009, LSU is 0-9 against teams ranked in the top-25, and they were outscored by an average of 16-points in each outing.
Trent Johnson believes that the past is in the past, and this is a new team. “This is a great measuring stick for our team” said Johnson in his Friday new conference. He also added, “They are a senior laden team with two potential All-Americans, a very complete team.” Marquette comes into the contest undefeated at 8-0. Six of their wins have been by a 20-point margin of victory. Marquette hasn’t played the most difficult schedule to date, but are beating opponents by an average score of 84-64.
