What to Know

The Arkansas Razorbacks and the #12 LSU Tigers are set to square off in an SEC matchup at 2 p.m. ET Jan. 15 at Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Razorbacks winning the first 83-75 at home and LSU taking the second 78-71.

The Missouri Tigers typically have all the answers at home, but on Wednesday Arkansas proved too difficult a challenge. Arkansas put a hurting on Mizzou at home to the tune of 87-43. Arkansas was heavily favored coming into this contest, and the results showcase why. Four players on Arkansas scored in the double digits: guard JD Notae (19), forward Trey Wade (17), guard Davonte Davis (15), and forward Jaylin Williams (13). That makes it three consecutive games in which Jaylin Williams has had at least ten rebounds.

Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, LSU beat the Florida Gators 64-58 on Wednesday. LSU’s forward Darius Days looked sharp as he had 20 points along with six rebounds.

Arkansas is now 11-5 while LSU sits at 15-1. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Razorbacks come into the game boasting the 23rd most points per game in college basketball at 80.5. But LSU ranks fifth in college basketball when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 56.5 on average. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
