LSU will be trying for a late-season reversal of fortune on the road against sixth-ranked Kentucky. The Tigers topped the Wildcats 65-60 in their first matchup at the P-MAC, but since then the two teams have been going in opposite directions. Coach Will Wade says there’s little the Tigers can take away from that game this time around.

Cut 18 (20) “…beat ‘em here.”

Tip-off is set for 8:00 pm.

In New Orleans, Tulane hosts a basketball doubleheader at Fogelman Arena. The 18-7 women’s team faces Southern Methodist at 3 pm as the Wave tries to move into second in the American Conference standings. Tulane hasn’t finished higher than 4th in the AAC since joining in 2014. The men welcome 14th-ranked Houston as they look to end a seven-game losing streak to the Cougars and maintain their hold on 4th place in the conference standings. That tip-off is at 7 pm.

A sold-out crowd is expected in Ruston tonight as Louisiana Tech hosts LSU on the Bulldogs home baseball diamond. Both teams enter the game 3-and-0. The Tigers swept Maine and scored a program-record 51 runs for a three-game series last weekend. Tech Coach Lane Burroughs says LSU’s hitters are a steep challenge for his pitchers…

Cut 19 (19) “… all year”

The teams played twice last year and LSU won both contests, 16 to 7 and 16 to 8.

The U-L Cajuns extended their winning streak to three games in a row after a come from behind 6-5 win over Southeastern in 10 innings. Carson Roccaforte was 2-5 with a double and two runs driven in, and CJ Willis went 2-for-4, including driving in the game-winning score in the bottom of the 10th. Jake Hammond picked up the win and Andrew Landry took the loss after allowing two runs in just one-third of an inning.
