Why LSU Will Win
It’s been a rough run over the last few games – starting with a loss to Alabama – but the team is still shooting okay and the threes keep coming. They’re not always falling in, but this team isn’t afraid of bombing away.

Why Alabama Will Win
The Tigers are having a problem keeping up lately – and it’s from the defensive side.
Yeah, they can score, but they couldn’t keep the Alabama offense in check in the 105-75 loss at home a few weeks ago. They did the impossible and got rocked by Kentucky, and as this is happening, the defense is struggling.
The offense hasn’t been totally miserable, but the LSU D hasn’t been able to clamp down. That’s where Alabama is more than happy take advantage with an offense that’s great at shooting from the outside and it’s hitting the boards hard.
What’s Going To Happen
Throw out the loss to Oklahoma on the road last Saturday – Alabama is playing tremendously well. The offense is able to up the tempo and it should be able to score without too many problems against the struggling LSU D.
The Tigers will be feisty, and they’ll do a nice job of forcing a few mistakes, but they won’t be able to deal with the pace.
