The LSU Lady Tiger basketball team opened the 2020-2021 season with a 67:51 loss to BYU on Friday evening at the South Point Shootout in Las Vegas.
BYU never got stuck in the game and took a 6-0 lead before LSU drew the game at 6 a.m.. By the end of the first quarter, LSU was only down 12-10, but BYU doubled Tigers by 22-10 in the second quarter and was 34-20 ahead of the break.

« We didn’t get any points on our bank games and our starters didn’t score a large percentage either, » said Nikki Fargas. « It is currently important to us to be able to turn a team around 24 times and not be able to convert these sales. « . ”
