The LSU Tigers were on fire, they had won 9 of their last 10 ten games until they hit a stumbling block against Rhode Island. The Tigers came into the game heavy favorites but the Rams were able to come in and win a close one on the road. The loss snapped LSU’s five game winning streak.

The Tigers will try to shake off the loss as the begin SEC play against the Tennessee Volunteers tonight in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

Tennessee comes into the game with a 9-4 record, but they have lost the majority of games they have played against quality competition. The game begins at 6:00 CT on ESPN or you can watch the live stream here. 

The volunteers are lead by their senior guard Jordan McRae. McRae is a dominant force on offense averaging nearly 19 points a game while shooting better than 45 percent from the field. He is a large guard at 6-6 and he uses his height to average more than a block a game.

Both teams match up pretty evenly but I think LSU playing at home will give them a slight advantage. LSU wins a close one 81-75.

Next: at South Carolina on January 11, 12:30 CT.
