LSU vs. Arkansas Key Players to Watch


Will Baker: Baker was a monster in the first meeting, scoring 25 points while hitting four threes in the blowout win. The big man is able canto play inside and out and bend defenses as a 37% three-point shooter in SEC play.


Tramon Mark: The Houston transfer has had some big efforts in a dismal year for Arkansas, including 23 at Kentucky over the weekend. The forward is draining 38% of his threes on the year and gets to the free-throw line at a high clip. Can he have another great showing at home against a poor LSU defense?

LSU vs. Arkansas Prediction and Pick

I can't trust Arkansas to win by margin against a capable offense.

The Razorbacks haven't beaten an SEC team that is inside the top 100 in effective field goal percentage all season. LSU ranks 84th in that metric.

LSU's a potent three-point shooting offense, hitting 37% of its threes in SEC play while also having a finisher around the rim in terms of Baker. The ability to stretch out a poor Arkansas defense that doesn't excel on that side of the floor, fouling at the third-highest rate in league games.

Arkansas' offense has been brutal all season, outside the top 200 in terms of effective field goal percentage and over-reliant on getting to the free throw line. However, LSU's defense has been compact and disciplined all season, allowing a three-point rate north of 41% (308th in the country).

If this game becomes a jump shot contest, give me LSU to hold up, even at Bud Walton Arena.
