LSU baseball holds off Bryant 13-6
02/22/2019 11:14pm

BATON ROUGE - The LSU Tiger baseball team won their fifth game in a row after dispatching the visiting Bryant Bulldogs 13-6 on Friday night in Alex Box Stadium.The Tigers pounded out 14 hits scoring ten runs in by the end of the fifth inning. LSU got a bounce back effort from starting pitcher Zack Hess who threw five innings of four hit ball allowing just one earned run while striking out six.All but two Tiger got hits on the night and four players drove in two or more runs with leftfielder Daniel Cabrera leading the way with a 2 for 4 night with four RBI and two runs scored.&ldquoI thought we played a really terrific game for about six innings against a really good team,&rdquo head coach Paul Mainieri said. &nbsp&ldquoBryant is a really outstanding team that has a great lineup. Zack Hess battled, and I thought Hess did a really good job. For about 90 percent of the game, I thought we played a good, all-around game.&nbsp&ldquoOur hitters were so much better tonight than they were earlier this week against Southeastern. I challenged them yesterday at practice, and I think they responded to it. I was really proud of our team. I hate for the sloppiness to take away from a really good win because we had a good win against a really good ball club. To our credit, we took advantage of the errors they made and we were able to have some good at bats after that.&rdquoThe LSU bullpen allowed five runs in the 7th and 8th inning with reliever Eric Walker giving up three runs on one hit while walking in just 1.2 innings.The Tigers second game of the series against the Bulldogs has been pushed back due to the threat of rain, it will now start at 7 p.m. at Alex Box Stadium.Permalink Comments

What Will Wade Said Following LSU Home Loss to Florida
02/20/2019 11:04pm

The LSU Tiger basketball team dropped their just their second home loss of the season on Wednesday night, the latest a 82-77 defeat to the Florida Gators in overtime.Following the game the Tigers spoke to the media and addressed their problem areas:LSU Head Coach Will WadeOpening statement&hellip&ldquoWe could just never get in rhythm tonight. The was played at Florida&rsquos pace and their way. We could never get ourselves gong and Florida was able to impose their will and their style of play on us. KeVaughn Allen was phenomenal for them. Obviously hit some big shots in the second half. I thought they really hurt us on the offensive glass in the second half. That was something that came back to bite us. We didn&rsquot finish well enough at the rim we didn&rsquot shoot free-throws like we normally shoot free throws. We weren&rsquot very crisp tonight. We weren&rsquot as crisp as we needed to be with our execution.&rdquoOn what Florida was able to do&hellip&ldquoI thought they beat us to a lot of 50-50 balls. I thought they were more physical. I told our guys all week that Florida was going to give us unbelievable resistance defensively and I don&rsquot think some of our guys believed us. I think some of our guys just thought we would show up and do what we do, but that wasn&rsquot the case.&rdquoOn how the Tigers tried to change from playing at Florida&rsquos pace to at their pace&hellip&ldquoIt&rsquos tough. We changed our defenses a little bit. The pace that you need to create with them is not &ndash you&rsquove got to create pace on offense, with your offense. You have to be able to get the ball up the court quicker. We sat there against 1-2-2 a couple times with the ball. We didn&rsquot create any pace with our offense. It&rsquos hard to create pace with your defense with them because they&rsquore a good shooting team. You&rsquove got to be able to create pace with your offense, and we weren&rsquot able to do that.LSU Guard Skylar MaysOn feelings during pregame warm ups and shoot around&hellip&ldquoIt was not the level of desperation we needed. They came out more desperate and you could tell in the first few minutes of the game that it was going to be a street fight. Credit to them, they just played harder than us. They got all the 50/50 balls. When things go like that, it is hard to win that way.&rdquoOn the physicality of Florida&hellip&ldquoThey are a very physical team. That is probably the most physical team we have faced, I do not want to say this year, but in a while. They definitely woke us up. We have to get back to the drawing board and get to work and prepare for Saturday.&rdquoOn struggle from the free throw line tonight&hellip&ldquoI would say that is not like us, but obviously we have to shoot better from the free throw line. I do not think that was the only deciding factor in the game. Just going back to how they played harder than us. They got a lot of extra possessions and offensive rebounds. Obviously, missing free throws does not help, but it was a big part of it.&rdquoOn using a game like tonight to get better&hellip&ldquoWe made a lot of mistakes today. Obviously, we have to go through the process of film and see what we can do better. At the end of the day, we are not getting this game back so we cannot let this game beat us twice. We have done that in the past before, but I think we have matured past that point. We are just going to come out and play a lot harder on Saturday.&rdquo&nbspLSU Forward Naz ReidOn getting hit in the mouth&hellip&ldquoI just wanted to keep playing. You get nicks and bruises in basketball.&rdquoOn physicality of Florida&hellip&ldquoThey are a really tough team. I cannot say much besides the fact they clearly wanted it more than us.&rdquoOn Tremont Water&rsquos shot on the last possession&hellip&ldquoJust go up and get the ball and fight for box outs. We obviously did not hit and did not get the rebound, so we did not fight hard enough.&rdquoPermalink Comments
