What to Know

The #13 LSU Tigers are 6-2 against the #24 Tennessee Volunteers since February of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. The Tigers and Tennessee will face off in an SEC battle at 6 p.m. ET at Thompson-Boling Arena. Tennessee will be strutting in after a win while LSU will be stumbling in from a loss.

LSU lost a heartbreaker to the Alabama Crimson Tide when they met last March, and they left with a heavy heart again on Wednesday. LSU fell just short of Bama by a score of 70-67. Guard Eric Gaines had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 34 minutes but putting up just nine points.

Speaking of close games: the Volunteers beat the Vanderbilt Commodores 68-60 on Tuesday. Tennessee got double-digit scores from four players: guard Santiago Vescovi (14), forward Uros Plavsic (13), guard Kennedy Chandler (13), and guard Zakai Zeigler (11).

LSU is now 15-3 while Tennessee sits at 12-5. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: LSU enters the contest with 18.6 takeaways on average, good for fifth best in college basketball. The Volunteers are not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they rank eighth in college basketball when it comes to takeaways, with 18.2 on average.
