Hot off pair of road wins, LSU hoops to host Gamecocks
BATON ROUGE - Coming off a week where they racked up two vital wins as the visiting team, LSU men's basketball is looking to keep the streak alive as they host South Carolina Wednesday night at 6 p.m.
The game will be the first of a Wednesday night doubleheader on the SEC Network with the Gamecocks coming into the Pete Maravich Assembly Center with an overall record of 10-8.
With last week's wins over Florida and Vanderbilt figured in, the Tigers are 15-4 overall with a three straight road wins in the SEC and five overall during this year's campaign. A similar lineup to the recent pair of wins is expected to appear on the court Wednesday night with Josh Gray and Keith Hornsby leading the attack as guards.
The Gamecocks fell to Kentucky by a score of 58-43 last Saturday and only averaged 22.6 percent shooting from the field during the loss.
Fans are reminded that city sewer work on campus around the PMAC has closed all westbound traffic at South Stadium Drive and Fieldhouse Drive, in front of the Military Science Building and the Public Safety Building, so alternate routes to parking lots should be used and extra time should be allowed to be seated in time for tipoff.
Tickets for the Tigers/Gamecocks game are still on sale at LSUtix.net on the web, at the LSU Athletics Ticket Office and starting at 4:30 p.m. at the upper concourse ticket windows of the Maravich Center. Students are admitted free with their valid LSU ID.
