The LSU Tigers (9-18, 1-14 SEC) made the wrong kind of history on Tuesday night with their 14th straight SEC loss, tying the most consecutive SEC losses for the program.
This time around, they lost to Auburn (17-11, 6-9 SEC) in decisive fashion by the score of 98-75. The LSU Tigers were able to start out strong, getting out to a two point lead. However, Auburn would get back out in front, quickly taking an 18-11 lead with 13:43 left in the first half.
It would look like LSU would fight back late in the first half tying the game up several times before Auburn finished strong and headed into the locker room with a 45-42 lead.
It was all Auburn to start the second half as they were able to extend their lead to double digits with 15:39 remaining in regulation. It continued to be all Auburn throughout the rest of the game and were able to get out to a 20 point lead in quick fashion.
LSU will return to action on Saturday when they take on the Georgia Bulldogs (15-12, 6-8 SEC) with tipoff set for 5 pm.
By the Numbers:
