What It Means: It would have been discouraging for this young Tiger basketball team not to win a game on this trip out west. LSU lost by 19 points to Boise State on Friday night, but came back to get a nice victory against UC Irvine, who had a losing record going into the contest. LSU is now 7-and-1 on the season
Stat of the Night: After 20 turnovers in the Boise State loss, LSU had eleven turnovers against UC Irvine. The Tigers forced 17 turnovers, resulting in 21 points.
What's next: LSU will barely have time to unpack its suitcases. They leave Friday for Milwaukee, where they'll face the Marquette Golden Eagles on Saturday afternoon. Marquette is 7-and-2, but lost by 33 points to Florida last month. LSU beat the Golden Eagles 67-59 last season. Tip-off on Saturday is at 1 PM.
