LSU is hoping to regroup after Tuesday’s loss to Arkansas in Georgia. Below is a look at the Tigers and Razorbacks and how they compete when they get in the tip just after 1 p.m. from Saturday to enter the CT on ESPN2

LSU and Arkansas meet for 71st Times in total and for the 61st Arkansas leads the all-time streak 37-33 for the first time since the Razorbacks joined the SEC, but the Tigers have a 38-33 advantage since the Hogs joined the league, including a 92-76 win on Jan 13

ESPN2 will broadcast the action shortly after 1am in the Bud Walton Arena, with Karl Ravech as play-by-play and Jimmy Dykes as color analyst Chris Blair and former LSU basketball coach John Brady will be calling the action on the LSU Sports Radio Network

Act as you care – This should be a breeze The Athens v Georgia court on Tuesday appeared to be the last place in the world LSU wanted to be, however There was little to no rush for loose balls, the defensive intensity was lacking and the LSU’s facial and body expression was not what one would expect from a team that could find themselves back in the bubble after three straight wins on The Tigers showed they can play with Sweet 16-type teams – Texas Tech and Tennessee However, the lack of maturity and emptiness in the lead that we saw against Georgia showed the temperament of Jekyll and Hyde that this team possesses Who knows which team will take the floor in Fayetteville?

Posts from All the Big 4 – LSU doesn’t have the depth or constant production off the bench to compensate for a break from any of the top four players – Javonte Smart, Cam Thomas, Darius Days or Trendon Watford – The Four Points and six rebounds from the days before he fouled, including 5-0 from the arch, won’t make it against anyone in the SEC, let alone one of the hottest teams in the league right now foul problems plagued Alabama in Wednesday’s Hogs loss, when three Crimson Tide players dropped out LSU cannot afford to lose any of the above four

Protect basketball – Arkansas blocked 11 bama shots and forced 16 turnovers The Razorbacks got their hands on a number of other passes and didn’t allow for many open looks. The LSU has to make crisp passes and not sloppy when they get into that Offensive in court The Tigers are at their best when they have good ball movement and the boys are moving with a purpose. Both were absent against Georgia and it cost Will Wade’s club a lot of money

I keep searching for reasons why LSU will take to the streets and claim a win against an NCAA tournament team. However, the Tigers are 2-5 against these types of teams this year with the lone wins against the Razorbacks before them found their groove and the surprise of Tennessee The LSU can get the “W”, but … Arkansas 87, LSU 82
