Senior forward Darius Days, who is second on the team in scoring (14 points per game), was limited to a season-low three points on 1-of-8 shooting as LSU received more production from its bench (30 points) than its starters (28).
The model also knows Alabama enters with a three-game losing streak after dropping a 78-76 decision at Mississippi State on Saturday. The Crimson Tide shot just 39.3 percent from the floor and finished 8-for-29 from beyond the arc as senior guard Keon Ellis missed a 3-point attempt at the buzzer.
