After winning four of their past five games, the LSU Tigers (15-8, 6-5) enter Saturday’s contest with the Arkansas Razorbacks (15-9, 4-7) having dropped two of their last three games and have a four-game losing streak in road games.
This is a rematch from Feb. 1 when LSU controlled the game from the opening tip to the final buzzer when the Tigers came away victorious 88-74.
But that was at home where LSU has shown they can play with anyone this year, especially when Johnny O’Bryant is not in foul trouble.
Much like LSU, Arkansas has played well at home this year as they have compiled a 12-2 record, including an overtime win over Kentucky and a two-point overtime loss to SEC leader Florida.
This LSU team has been tough to figure out and any more losses will bury their NCAA Tournament chances, but Jordan Mickey and O’Bryant combined for 45 points and 20 rebounds when the two teams met earlier this month, so they’ll have to be the difference if LSU is to snap their road losing streak.
