Oregon Dispatches LSU From Postseason Play

Last fall, LSU best Oregon in the two teams’ football opener in Arlington, Texas.  Last night, the Ducks got revenge.

Playing on the most obnoxious playing surface west of Boise’s blue football field, LSU fell 96-76 to a hot-shooting Oregon club.  The Tigers rallied to cut the lead to 10 with less than four minutes to play, but the-team-that-Nike-built pulled away from there.

“They came out with a lot more energy,” Ralston Turner said.  “I think that was the difference in the game.  They just hit us in the mouth, and we didn’t respond well.”

Or as Trent Johnson put it: “For whatever reason, we couldn’t guard them.”

Justin Hamilton led LSU with 21 points and nine boards.  Johnson’s team ends the season at 18-15.  But more encouraging is this fact — all five Tiger starters should return to Baton Rouge next season.

No fans dream of reaching the NIT, but this year’s bid for LSU was a sign that the program once again appears headed in the right direction.
