Wink Unranked LSU Beats Number One Arizona

Now this was a shocker. LSU winning 66-65 in Baton Rouge, Lousiana. LSU led by 15 points in the second half at one time, but Arizona rallied, but not enough.

Jaime Lloreda led the LSU Tigers with 19 points and 13 rebounds.

This is only the second time in LSU history that they have beaten a number one team. They beat number one ranked Kentucky in 1978 in overtime, 95-94 on Feb. 11th.

The Tigers held Arizona to a season low of shooting 33% from the field, including 18 percent(4 of 22) from three point range.

I OWN THIS is on a distinguished road

Great win for LSU and the SEC. I was surprised that this game was not at least in the lower 80s. LSU played good defense and rebounded quite well to get this victory.

First, it was Kansas who got shocked after being hyped preseason, now Arizona. Who next? Arizona wasn't going to run the tables and this doesn't hurt their title chances at all.
