LSU evened its record at the Paradise Jam on Saturday with a 72-58 victory against Weber State.
The Tigers (3-1) responded after dropping Friday's opener, 70-61 to Old Dominion. LSU shot 49.2 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from the line after struggling in both areas Friday.
Jordan Mickey took 24 shots against Weber State to lead the Tigers with 27 points, his highest point total of the season.

Keith Hornsby followed him with 18 points, including a pair of three pointers. Jarell Martin also made it into double digits with 11.
