    Wow, can you say "disgustingly unsportsmanlike"? How about "gamesmanship"? Criminy. I'm glad we have a coach that will put a game like that away comfortably without being classless like that. BF FTW.

    I think Duke's 15 min of being a wbb power are about up.

    Considering none of LSU's starters played more than 20 minutes, what were they supposed to do - walk off the floor at some point? Intentionally miss shots? Pass the ball directly to Centinary? Let them score on them? Pretty sure even if they did all those things it wouldn't have made much of a difference, considering LSU's 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13th players played significant minutes that night. Doesn't it at some point fall on Centenary to put some points on the board against LSU's "worst" players? Perhaps you should have checked out the box score before you started running your mouth about how LSU kept their best players on the floor to humiliate a team that bad. Here, I'll even provide the link that shows that everyone played. I pretty much hate LSU, but I get sick of the unfounded accusations of "such and such a team kept their best players in just to run the score up on some no-name team." At some point it has to fall on the opponent to score.

    Perhaps they did that with the backups. Even so, do you expect them to dribble out the clock. That doesn't really help you get ready for a season now does it. If Centenary doesn't like it stop taking the paydays.

    Centenary was 8-44 from the field, and of their 33 turnovers only 16 were LSU steals. This just looks like the Centenary team was ridiculously outmatched.
