GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WAFB) - The No. 12 LSU men’s basketball team beat the Florida Gators, 64-58, in Gainesville on Wednesday, Jan. 12.

Darius Days led the Tigers with 20 points. He also pulled down six rebounds. Eric Gaines added 15 points. Brandon Murray chipped in 10 points.

The LSU defense was relentless, attacking Florida on the right and forcing them to go left.

One big problem for the Tigers all night long was fouls.

In the second half, the Gators did start to make a comeback.

With about 3:46 left in the game, the Tigers were leading the Gators, 56-54.

Forward Shareef O’Neal made his first appearance of the season. He finished with four points.

O’Neal had not played since February of 2021 while trying to recover from a foot injury.
