Tennessee Vols lose at #13 LSU in Overtime, 82-80

 

UT Athletics

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsBaton Rouge, LA – The No. 5 Tennessee Vols suffered an overtime loss on the road Saturday against No. 13 LSU at Pete Maravich Assembly Center, 82-80.
 
A shot with 0.6 seconds left just missed and handed the Vols (24-3, 12-2 SEC) their second straight loss on the road. The Tigers (22-5, 12-2 SEC) were fueled by a raucous, sold-out crowd and the absence of SEC Player of the Year candidate Tremont Waters, who was out due to illness.
 
Javonte Smart stepped up big for LSU, dropping a career-high 29 points to go along with five rebounds, five assists and three steals. Skylar Mays chipped in 23 points as well.
