LSU's ride in Nashville has come to an end.
The Tigers were outclassed by No. 13 Florida, 80-58, in Nashville on Friday, paced by 27 points and 12 rebounds from first-team All-SEC big man Erik Murphy.
Senior Charles Carmouche was the only LSU player in double digits, scoring 14 points.
With the loss the Tigers drop to 19-12 overall and will have to sweat it out until Sunday evening to learn about their NIT fate.
Florida, the top-seeded team in the conference tournament, improved to 25-6 overall and will play in one semifinal game tomorrow at noon.
