🔼 Make Some Noise. The men’s basketball team is rattling the SEC! They picked up a 89-80 win over No. 21/22 Ole Miss last night to improve to 3-1 in conference play. The Tigers scored 54 second half points. Jordan Wright filled the stat sheet with 27 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and seven steals. Will Baker and Hunter Dean had eight rebounds each to lead the Tigers. Tiger fans showed out last night, and they’ll need to do it again on Saturday when Texas A&M comes to town!

🔼 Wheels Up. The 10th-ranked women’s basketball team is back in Alabama tonight for a game against the Crimson Tide. The Tigers were at Auburn last weekend, where they lost 67-62. They’re looking for a different outcome tonight as they try to get another win-streak going. The matchup will air on the SEC Network at 8 pm.

🔼  Future Final Four. ESPN analyst and former Olympian Kathy Johnson Clarke named LSU gymnastics as one of her Final Four teams on the Flipping Out Podcast with Bridget Sloan! “Battle-tested resilience,” she calls the Tigers that fought through injuries last season. She named the Tigers the “best team who has never won a national championship.” LSU will host their first SEC meet on Friday as No. 6 Kentucky comes to the PMAC!
