Men's Basketball: LSU scouting report and how to watch

Ohio is heading south.

For the second time in two weeks, Ohio will face a Southeastern Conference opponent when it travels to face LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Wednesday night. While not as strong as Ohio’s previous SEC opponent — then-No. 13 Kentucky — LSU is still a team to be reckoned with. It has received votes in all four of the weekly Associated Press Top 25 Polls, and it is one of the 20 remaining undefeated teams in the NCAA.
