LSU played without Anthony Hickey and Johnny O'Bryant, but still had no problem beating Houston Baptist 75-58 Friday night at the PMAC.
Andre Stringer, Shavon Coleman and Jalen Courtney each scored eleven points to lead a balanced scoring attack, which also featured four Tigers with nine points each.
LSU (8-2) only had nine scholarship players in uniform, missing Hickey who was sidelined for disciplinary reasons and O'Bryant, who was nursing a leg injury he suffered in the Marquette game.
Tyler Russell led Houston Baptist (4-8) with 15 points, but the Huskies only shoot 33 percent from the field and trailed by as many as 21 points in the second half.
