The LSU Tiger men's basketball team returns to play after a one week layoff on Saturday, when they host the Arkansas Razorbacks, in SEC play, at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center, in Baton Rouge.

In their last outing, back on January 28, the Tigers fell to the top-ranked Kentucky Wildcats, 74-50.

That was the fifth loss in the last six games for LSU, who now stands at 12-9 overall, and 2-5 in SEC play, while the Razorbacks come in at 16-6 overall, and 4-3 in league play.

LSU is led by junior center Justin Hamilton, who is averaging 13.6 points and 7.2 rebounds a game, while junior forward Marshawn Powell paces Arkansas, at 19.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per outing.
