G 10 Andre Stringer (5-9, Fr., Jackson, Miss.) 13.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 3.0 apg (10.0 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 5.0 apg in SEC) LSU's Notes: Had 21 points on two occasions ... Hit four treys five times ... Started at point since third game ... Long-range shooter hit 36 treys (2.1 a game) ... Led in scoring in 8 games, double figures 12 ... Season best seven assists vs. Arkansas, just two turnovers (1/12) ... 37-of-102 (35.3% from arc) ... 76.1 percent from line (70-92). KSR's Notes: Is that a mugshot? G 21 Matt Derenbecker (6-7, Fr., Metairie, La.) 5.8 ppg, 2.1 rpg (13.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg in SEC) LSU's Notes: Made his first start with Ralston Turner out at Auburn (1/8) ... Had 3rd double figure game of year with 15 points ... Posted second straight double figure game with 12 vs. Arkansas (1/12) ... Played 77 minutes last two games combined. KSR's Notes: By the looks of Derenbecker I'd say he is a good free throw shooter and has a high basketball IQ G 45 Aaron Dotson (6-4, So., Seattle Wash.) 7.4 ppg, 3.2 rpg (2.5 ppg, 6.0 rpg in SEC) LSU's Notes: Looks to find touch again that he had earlier in the season ... Sophomore season overall improved finally shaking knee injury from high school senior season ... Double figures four times. KSR's Notes: Soft. F 13 Eddie Ludwig (6-9, So., Metairie, La.) 3.2 ppg, 2.9 rpg (4.5 ppg, 2.5 rpg in SEC) LSU's Notes: Replaced Storm Warren in the last two games because of tendonitis in right achilles ... Had six points and four rebounds in 23 minutes in the Auburn win ... Ludwig making 78.9 percent at the line (30-of-38). KSR's Notes: Ludwig is listed as probable (gingervitis).  He leads the SEC in freckles and he has no soul. F 5 Malcolm White (6-9, Jr., Baton Rouge, La.) 8.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 1.2 bpg (10.0 ppg, 6.0 rpg in SEC) LSU's Notes: Ole MIss transfer returned to starting lineup at Rice (12/29) after coming off the bench against Southern (12/27) to record second double double of career (both at LSU) ... Has started 16 of 17 games ... 57-of-115 from field (49.6 percent) ... Ninet games scoring in double figures ... Leads team in blocks with 21. KSR's Notes: Scored 20 points for Ole Miss against Kentucky in 2009.  Also soft. MATT WILL LIVE BLOG THE GAME BEGINNING AT 3:30.
