LSU-Vanderbilt: Eye of the Tigers

By Jessica Garrison - March 04, 2007


I coudn't help the title -- the LSU just played Eye of the Tiger during the time out and I have to admit, I chuckled. Either that means I've been in Duluth, Alabama too long or I've got serious mascot issues and Mike the Tiger is winning me over.

LSU's winning too, and Vanderbilt's plan to get up on their opponent early hasn't come to fruition in any way. Previously seeming invincible in their shooting, they've tossed up more than a couple bricks this evening. LSU has tossed up a few as well, which is why it's only 9-8 in LSU's favor ten minutes into the game.

The Tigers are playing scrappy, hard-nosed basketball -- wheteher they mean to get the Commodores into foul trouble or not, it's working, as Vandy's answer to Sylvia Fowles, senior forward Carla Thomas, already has two fouls. Vanderbilt can definitely run with this team, but unless their hands heat up I'm not sure they can keep up the level of defensive intensity needed to keep the Tigers off the board.
