The Tigers were able to snap their two-game losing streak with a win over South Carolina in their last game. They will try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Gators, which will give them their second win in a row and third win in their last five games.

LSU is one of the best offensive teams in the country. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 31 percent from three-point range. They finished with 86 points in their last game and will need to keep playing well offensively if they want to get the win.

Darius Days led the way for the Tigers with 18 points and nine rebounds. Javonte Smart finished with 18 points and three assists, while Trendon Watford added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Tigers.

LSU has struggled defensively, giving up 73.2 points per game. They gave up 80 points in their last game and will need to do a better job on defense if they want to get past the Gators.

Gators Going For Fourth Win In Five Games

The Gators had their three-game winning streak snapped by 10th ranked Kentucky in their last game and will try to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Tigers, which will give them their fourth win in their last five games.

Florida has played well offensively, averaging 72.3 points per game. The team is shooting 45 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range. They finished with 59 points in their last game and will need a significantly better offensive performance if they want to beat the Tigers.

Keyontae Johnson led the way for the Gators with 19 points and nine rebounds. Kerry Blackshear Jr. finished with 18 points and six rebounds, while Tre Mann added 13 points and two rebounds for the Gators.

LSU’s biggest problem this season has been the team’s defense, which will haunt them against the Gators. The Tigers are giving up 73.2 points per game, but they have played worse on the road, giving up 80.6 points per game and will have a hard time slowing down the Gators, who are averaging 75.1 points per game at home. The Gators also play well on the defensive end, giving up 66.4 points per game. They are holding opponents to 64.7 points per game at home and will be up to the challenge of slowing down the Tigers, who are averaging 82.7 points per game on the road.
