The LSU Tiger’s (15-9, 6-6) men’s basketball team is back home tonight after suffering back-to-back road losses last week for their evening tip off against the Mississippi State Bulldogs (13-12, 3-9) who are in the midst of a seven game losing streak.
It’s been mentioned frequently over the last week, but LSU can not afford any more losses this regular season if they hope to get to the NCAA Tournament. Currently, their RPI is 70 and their BPI at 66, so with a team mired in a season-long losing streak and in search of their first true road win of the season, LSU is in a must-win situation.
Here’s how you can watch all the action live on Friday between the Tigers and the Bulldogs:
Date: Feb. 19
Start Time: 7 PM CT
Location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Arena: Pete Maravich Assembly Center
TV Info: ESPN3

I’m picking LSU to continue extend their home winning streak and continue the losing streak and season long road woes for Rick Ray’s team in a 77-69 victory.
