Ole Miss-LSU: Photo Finish

By Jessica Garrison - March 02, 2007

The SEC didn't waste any time getting my heart rate up -- I walked in to what looked like a confident 10-point LSU lead, and ended up on the edge of my seat as Ole Miss tied the game at 46 with 44 seconds remaining. (The Florida band was elated.) LSU's shooting was abyssmal in the second half, just like their cold start to the game, but their defense kept them in it. When Sylvia Fowles threw up a couple of free-throw bricks the Tigers were rightfully worried, but Erica White sank a pair of free throws and got a breakaway layup to put LSU back up by 4 inside 10 seconds. (The Gator band looked deflated.)

LSU emerged triumphant, 52-46, but coach Pokey Chatman and White had their jaws clenched tight in the press conference. 52 points and at least 10 minutes of play without field goals doesn't bode well when all tomorrow holds is a showdown with Tennessee. I have a feeling tomorrow's LSU walkthrough will be anything but casual.

Strike two, Gwinnett Center -- I just lost two posts to the bad wireless Internet connection. You looked so promising from I-85, too.
