Nicholls St. Upsets LSU, 62-53

Courtesy—lsusports.net

Anatoly Bose scored 18 of his game-high 28 points during the second half as Nicholls handed the LSU men’s basketball team a 62-53 setback Tuesday inside the Maravich Center.

Fred Hunter also added 18 points and seven rebounds for the Colonels (1-1), who ended LSU’s 82-game home winning streak to Louisiana schools dating back to the start of the streak on Dec. 8, 1988 against McNeese State. The last Louisiana team to win in the PMAC was Louisiana Tech in a 111-109 overtime  decision on Dec. 6, 1988.  

LSU (1-1) received 14 points apiece from Andre Stringer and Matt Derenbecker off the bench. Storm Warren tacked on eight points and hauled in a game-high 14 rebounds for the Tigers.

Nicholls took a 35-34 edge on a pair of Eldridge Moore free throws with 13:50 remaining in the second half and never relinquished the lead.  

Down 51-42 with 3:14 left in second half, LSU mounted a rally ignited by a Derenbecker layup. A Stringer driving basket followed by a triple at the top of the key pulled the Tigers back to 54-50 with 54 seconds on the clock.

However, Nicholls connected for six-of-eight at the foul line down the stretch to secure the 62-53 win. The Colonels forced LSU into 18 turnovers and limited the Tigers to a 7-for-22 shooting clip during the second half. 

LSU built a 19-12 advantage on a Dotson layup via a Warren steal with 5:25 to go in the first half. Stringer poured in LSU’s last six points during the final 1:36 of the opening stanza to lift the Tigers to a 25-21 edge going into the locker room. 

“We want to congratulate Nicholls. Obviously they did a very, very good job getting this game to their tempo. Coach Piper had them prepared well this game as well as the last few times we’ve played them. What we had was a basketball team that forced us to play a different match-up because they’re undersized,” said LSU Coach Trent Johnson. “But again, the things we talked about, the things we worked on in the last two practices in terms of taking care of the ball, rebounding and all those kinds of things we’ve got to get corrected. Too many times we’re in situations where the ball is being thrown to the post, and we’re catching it with one hand as opposed to catching it with two. When you have 18 turnovers and you spread them around, you’re not going to beat a lot of people, but I don’t want to take anything away from Nicholls.”

LSU concludes its three-game home swing Thursday against Tennessee-Martin inside the Maravich Center. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. as the Tigers will make their television debut on CST. The game also will be broadcasted on 100.7 FM in the Baton Rouge area and on LSUsports.net/live.
