      Both teams finished the night shooting under 40 percent from the field with LSU shooting 39.2 percent (20-51) to the Red Wolves’ 38.6 percent (22-57). The Tigers shot 40 percent (8-for-20) beyond the arc while A-State was just 5-for-25 (.200), including 3-of-14 (.214) in the second half. A-State was 3-for-4 (.750) at the charity stripe while LSU knocked down 13-of-16 (.813).
