LSU Basketball drops Heartbreaker Down Stretch at No. 14 Arkansas 77-76

LSU put themselves in first place, but the rough calls and paint fights piled up and were the main difference makers in a 77-76 loss to the Arkansas Razorbacks.

With Jaylin Williams dominating inside the paint and giving the Razorbacks a myriad of second-chance buckets, the Tigers were left with no answer for the second-year forward.

An abysmal shooting performance from Arkansas at the gate, SEC Player of the Year nominee JD Notae let his playing ability give the Razorbacks a boost. Creating for others and operating from the pick and roll, his vision lost the Tigers.
