In what could very well wind up being a late-season trap game for Tennessee, coach Rick Barnes and company have an uphill battle in Baton Rouge coming up. Wade has consistently coached well against Barnes, having taken four of their last five meetings. Not to mention, LSU is very good at home, boasting a record of 8-2.
Tennessee, however, has hit a stride of their own as of late, rattling off four wins in their last five games. The Vols have been led by freshmen standouts Keon Johnson and Jaden Springer in their last two wins.
As underrated as LSU may be, Tennessee seems to have found a rhythm offensively lately with a new game plan of driving to the basket more. Combine that with the No. 11 defense in the country, and you’re looking at a whole new Tennessee team to end the season.
