Despite picking up a huge win over the Kentucky Wildcats in their prior outing, the LSU Tigers continue to find themselves being hunted by Kentucky as it relates to conference positioning. They continue to reside in second place within the SEC while also being winners of four straight games.
The Gators defense continues to be the reason for them remaining competitive this season in allowing just 63 points on 41% shooting per game to opponents.
