With football now out of the way, basketball takes center stage in the SEC. Let’s take a look at what’s happening this evening.
[All games available on WatchESPN]
LSU-Texas A&M and Florida-Ole Miss begin the night simultaneously. With good vibes going on in Baton Rouge, the Tigers basketball team will hope to keep those rolling on in College Station. The Tigers have lost just one true road game this season (to be fair, they’ve only played two) and this begins a two-game roadtrip this week. Lowly A&M did pick off both Ole Miss and the Vanderbilt Commodores in their last two games, so they will hope to make it three in a row Tuesday evening.
Meanwhile, Florida is still in the midst of a relatively disappointing season. They hit another bump in the road last Saturday when they lost 91-75 to Mizzou. The Gators now hope to regain their composure, as they’re set to face Ole Miss at home in Gainesville. This is a big week for UF, as they will be facing the Auburn Tigers later on this week. And Auburn, of course, is still undefeated to this point in the season.
Finally, those same Mizzou Tigers are fixing to face Mississippi State in Starkville. The Tigers are hoping to string two wins in a row together after their aforementioned win over Florida on Saturday. State, meanwhile, is in their woes, as they’ve lost three in a row and four of their last five entering play on Tuesday night. Will they be able to find a spark and get a much-needed victory? Time shall soon tell.
Florida (-11.5) vs. Ole Miss
LSU (-6.5) vs. Texas A&M
Mississippi State (-2.5) vs. Mizzou
