The Gators, without leading scorers Michael Frazier II and Dorian Finney-Smith, fell victim to two Tiger runs early in each half. In fact LSU ran out to a 12-0 lead in the game's opening minutes.
Jarell Martin paced the Bayou Bengals with a career-high 28 points, his attacking nature reflected in 16 free throw attempts (Martin made 11). The sophomore from Baton Rouge tacked on 13 rebounds, two assists, a block and a steal.
Jordan Mickey posted 14 points, six rebounds and four blocks while Keith Hornsby chipped in 12 points to round out the double-digit scorers for the Tigers.
