LSU coach John Brady still called his number again at the end of the game. The freshman scored off a set play with 30 seconds to play to give the No. 25 LSU men's basketball team a 65-61 win over Auburn on Saturday. LSU senior guard Darrel Mitchell added two free throws with one second to play to clinch the victory. LSU improved to 18-7 overall and 10-2 in the Southeastern Conference, winning its third-straight and the fourth in five games. Auburn (10-13, 2-10) had a couple of chances to tie or take the lead after Tasmin Mitchell's big shot, but Quantez Robertson missed a 3-pointer with 7 seconds left and Ronny LeMelle missed a jumper three seconds later. Davis coralled the rebound off LeMelle's miss with four seconds left to seal the win. Darrell Mitchell scored 16 points, including the game-clinching free throws with 1 second left. Tasmin Mitchell was 1-for-3 from the field while battling foul trouble for most of the night. Glen Davis led LSU with 24 points -- 17 in the second half -- and 11 rebounds. Darrel Mitchell added 16, while Tyrus Thomas had 14 points, eight rebounds, four blocked shots and three steals. Tasmin Mitchell, who was only 1-of-3 for the game, struggled with foul trouble throughout and turned the ball over four times in 26 minutes. However, his layup in the final minute proved to be the difference in the game. LeMelle led Auburn with 21 points, 16 of which came in the first half. Josh Dollard had with 12 points and Robertson added 10.
Auburn has now lost all four of its meetings against ranked opponents, including an 84-69 defeat at LSU earlier this month.
