NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Erik Murphy scored a career-high 27 points and grabbed a career-best 12 rebounds to help the 13th-ranked Florida Gators elimnate the LSU Tigers from the SEC men's basketball tournament.
Ninth-seeded LSU (19-12) tried to keep up with the rested Gators but looked a step slow with too many shots just short a day after beating Georgia to advance.
Charles Carmouche led the Tigers with 14 points.
LSU will now wait and see if they will be selected to play in the NIT.
