LSU beats UM in hard-fought hoops game

Bam had 20 vs. LSU

Ole Miss gave SEC West leader LSU fits before falling 79-73 in Oxford.

The run basically did it. Sure, LSU hit some big buckets late. So did Ole Miss. But LSU beat Ole Miss Saturday afternoon because of a 24-5 run in the first half to move from trailing 21-11 to leading 35-26. When it came right down to it, that was your ole ballgame. That, and LSU's ability to answer late. Something like a 14-5 run is expected in college basketball. A run like 24-5 happens too... Recommended Stories
