TUSCALOOSA, AL - The LSU men's basketball team rallied from 19 points down to take the lead against Alabama, but faltered late as they lost 82-80 Saturday night. 

The Tigers have now lost 9 straight times in Tuscaloosa, although this was possibly the Tigers best chance to win during that streak. 

Alabama took a 47-28 lead in the second half, but the Tigers chipped away until they tied the game at 64 and then took the lead. 

Johnny O'Bryant hit back-to-back buckets to put the Tigers up 77-76, but the Tide responded with a 3-pointer from Shannon Hale and Alabama re-took the lead 79-77. 

LSU had two opportunities to tie-or-win the game with less than 30 seconds left, but Andre Stringer gave up a turnover with 20 seconds left, and Anthony Hickey missed a potential game-tying shot as time expired. 

Johnny O'Bryant paced the Tigers (12-6, 3-3) with 18 points and 5 rebounds.

LSU will now return home to face #14 Kentucky on Tuesday.
