The Turning Point | Tigers Overcome Adversity to Top Tennessee and Set a Course for the SEC Title
That's the prevailing memory I'll take away from LSU's 82-80 overtime win over Tennessee on Saturday.
It wasn't the win, which set the Tigers back atop the SEC and put them back in control of their conference championship destiny.
It was the atmosphere, the emotion, the awe of two great teams at their best, competitors engaged at the highest levels of performance despite seemingly insurmountable odds.
We talk a little bit about that on today's show, before breaking down the nuances of the win: Javonte Smart's clutch showing, Skylar Mays' shotmaking, Darius Days' versatility, Kavell Bigby-Williams' quiet, consistent excellence, Marshall Graves' moment of magic, and Wayde Sims' ever-present spirit in what Will Wade called a total team win.
We also talk about Wade's comments on his team's need to find consistency heading into Tuesday's crucial tilt with Texas A&M, and we finish with some words from Skylar Mays that you don't want to miss.
