LSU News & Notes

LSU turns in a rock-solid performance

Underdogs usually get one chance to get their best bite in. Second one isn't nearly as fierce most of the time. LSU was left with a nasty wound the last time it took on an outmanned Auburn team. That sting didn't fade away too quickly. So when the two teams got together Tuesday night on The Plains, the notion of an underdog surprise never even registered.

LSU in race for one of three remaining SEC

With only four games remaining in the regular season, the Southeastern Conference men’s basketball tournament is starting to come into focus. It is for some teams, anyway. In a not-so-shocking development, top-ranked and unbeaten Kentucky has officially clinched a double-bye and won’t have to play until the quarterfinals of the March 11-15 tournament at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. On the other end of the spectrum, Missouri, which has lost 13 consecutive games since topping LSU in overtime in its conference opener on Jan. 8, will be playing on the first day of the tournament when the bottom four seeds fight for the right to play another day. Almost everything else is in play at this point, even the possibility of LSU having a shot at securing one of the other three double-byes awarded to the top four teams in the final standings.

What a show! LSU gymastics scores historic win

Sensing it was going to be a festive Friday night in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, the third-ranked LSU gymnastics team broke out new black leotards with Mardi Gras colors splashed across the front and back. The Tigers were right, it was an electric night from start to finish. Taking on No. 2 Florida, which shared the NCAA title with Oklahoma last spring, third-ranked LSU put on a big show for the largest home crowd in program history in taking a 197.950 -197.425 win. With 12,217 fans wildly cheering the Tigers’ every move, LSU (9-1, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) was consistent through the first three rotations in grabbing a 148.375-148.200 lead over Florida (5-2, 4-2 SEC) en route to its second-highest total this season. The Tigers scored a 49.425 on vault before throwing up a 49.500 on bars. Then, LSU virtually put it away with a 49.450 on balance beam and capped it with a 49.575 on floor exercise, while Florida was struggling on its final two rotations — finishing with a 49.225 on beam and 49.325 on floor.

Mr. Do It All: Andrew Stevenson shines for LSU

Andrew Stevenson raced toward the warning track in center field at almost a full sprint. He flung out his left hand in search of the wall, threw up his gloved right hand and hoped the baseball found his mitt. Of course, it did. It usually does. Stevenson’s third-inning catch in LSU’s 16-2 win over Boston College doesn’t seem so important in a 14-run victory. But it saved two runs, preserved the Tigers’ four-run lead at the time and helped a rookie starter get out of a troublesome inning. Thing is, it may have been Stevenson’s less impactful play of his explosive weekend in the Tigers’ three-game series sweep of Boston College.
