O'Bryant the catalyst for LSU's offense
BATON ROUGE - The LSU offense got off to a hot start and didn't look back against Vanderbilt Saturday afternoon.
Much of the credit for that can go straight to the big man down low: Johnny O'Bryant III.
"Johnny once he gets going is hard to stop," said junior guard Anthony Hickey. "Then we're just playing off him."
O'Bryant got his first double-double in almost a two month span, using 13 first quarter points to spearhead an aggressive Tiger offensive attack.
"He did a great job of trying to find angles and playing to them," head coach Johnny Jones told the media Monday. "He was strong in terms of going to the basket and making plays."
As for adjustments from future teams keying on O'Bryant, coach Jones says other players have to be ready when it's their opportunity.
"Teams are going to make their adjustments in terms of how they guard him," Jones said. "That's the sign of a good basketball team.
"We don't have to have one guy that we depend on to lead us in scoring. Other guys have to be able to execute when that time comes."
