VIDEO: Hornsby talks winning on the road

Keith Hornsby and LSU travel to Missouri Thursday night for both teams' SEC opener. The junior talked about what it takes to win away from home and how this LSU team is building the depth it takes to succeed.

LSU junior guard Keith Hornsby is ready for his first taste of SEC action as a member of the Tigers (he did play against a few SEC teams while at UNC-Asheville).

The Bayou Bengals open conference play Thursday night at Missouri.

Hornsby recognized that it's exceedingly difficult to win away from home in league play, something that was underscored time and again last season when no one except Florida won regularly on the road.

"Everybody says the home team plays better at home. I think the opposing crowds in their own territory are really tough and really hostile. So the teams coming in there don't play as well," noted Hornsby. "I think it's just hard to win on the road."

Check out more from today's interview with Hornsby, including his take on the SEC and how LSU has slowly but surely established some depth on the 2014-15 team.
