In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Furman at LSU.
The Furman Paladins are 12-0 and they are on the few teams in college basketball which are still undefeated. In their last game, they cruised past UNC-Wilmington with a win by 43 points. They will now have a tougher task, coming up against a much reputable side. Furman is averaging 83.7 points per game on 48% shooting. They have 3 players averaging double digits in scoring while they are also allowing just 64.9 points per game on 41% shooting.
The LSU Tigers didn’t start the season as well as they would’ve liked. However, they are now 8-3 after beating Saint Mary, 78-74. The team is averaging 81.2 points per game on 48% shooting from the floor while allowing 71.3 points per game. They have 4 players averaging double digits in scoring but their leading scorer Skylar Mays is averaging just 13.3 points per game.
Furman has been outstanding on both ends of the floor this year and even though LSU might hand them their first loss, I still believe that they will be competitive. 9 points are too much to cover for a team that nearly lost to a Saint Mary side which is far worse than Furman.
