The lead went back-and-forth until the 2:48 mark, when LSU guard Charles Carmouche stole the ball and raced the length of the court for a fast-break layup. The Tigers would not trail again.

Three Tigers scored in double figures including Hickey. Johnny O’Bryant III scored 14 points and added 10 rebounds, while Shavon Coleman led LSU with 17 points.
