The LSU Tigers return to the hardwood on Thursday night, when coach Johhny Jones’ squad travels to Nashville, Tennessee to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores in SEC action.

The game begins the final week of the regular season for LSU, who host Georgia on Saturday in their regular season finale.

LSU, who lost to top-ranked Florida, 79-61, on Saturday in Gainesville, Florida, has lost their last seven road games, and currently stand at 17-11, overall, and 8-8 in SEC play.

That 8-8 league mark puts the Tigers in a tie for sixth place in the conference standings, along with Missouri, Texas A&M, and Ole Miss.

Vanderbilt, who is 15-13, overall, and 7-9 in league play, has lost three of their last four, and is currently in tenth place in the conference standings.

Offensively, LSU currently is second in the conference, scoring 76.8 points-per-game, while Vanderbilt ranks 13th, averaging 65.0 points a contest.

LSU is led by junior forward Johnny O’Bryant, who is averaging 15.6 points-per-game, along with 7.8 rebounds-per-game, while Vanderbilt is paced by senior forward Rod Odom, who is averaging 13.8 points-per-game.

The Tigers won the earlier match-up this season, defeating the Commodores, 81-58, back on January 18 in Baton Rouge.

Tip-off time is scheduled for 6 o’clock.
