Niceville, Florida — After leaving home for the first time this season, the LSU basketball team finally took the first big test at the Emerald Coast Classic on Friday night.
Indeed, it was a rigorous test of the Tigers’ offense and defense in a high-priced contest that required overtime sessions to determine the winner.
However, LSU survived when Will Wade surpassed Pennsylvania State University 10-5 in five minutes of overtime to win 68-63 on Will Wade’s 39th birthday.
It was the sixth consecutive victory to start the LSU season.
This is the first 6-0 start of Wade’s five-year tenure and the first program since 2012-13 when the Tigers did it in their first season as Johnny Jones head coach.
LSU will play again at 6 pm on Saturday against the winner of the second half of Friday night between Wake Forest and Oregon State University. The game will be aired by CBS Sports Network.
