The North Carolina Central Eagles and the LSU Tigers will both be trying to pick up a win on Tuesday when they battle at Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA CENTRAL (6-4): He’s not quite Russell Westbrook, but Eagles guard Patrick Cole is becoming quite a one-man show of late, earning Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Week honors for the third time this season on Monday. The 6-5 Cole has team-high averages in scoring (21 points), rebounds (7.6) and assists (6.3), ranking in the conference’s top three in each category. Cole showed against LIU Brooklyn last week that he can adapt to defenses concentrating on stopping him by dishing out a career-best 13 assists in a North Carolina Central win.

ABOUT LSU (5-2): One nice development before the break was the improved play of freshman point guard Skylar Mays, who had a career-best 11 assists in the win over Houston. Despite playing just 20.6 minutes a game and playing off the bench the last three games, Mays leads LSU in assists, averaging 4.4, while turning the ball over just 13 times. But Mays has also shown some troubles offensively as a freshman, including his scoreless outing against the Cougars in which he was 0-of-4 from the field.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Tigers listed as 11-point favorites versus the Eagles, while the game’s total is sitting at 142 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

In their last action, LSU was a 84-65 winner at home against Cougars. They covered the +4.5-point spread as underdogs.

Last time out for North Carolina Central, they were a 70-67 loser as they battled Chanticleers on the road.

LSU returns to the court after a 14-day break for finals, looking to build on some momentum when it hosts North Carolina Central for a nonconference tilt on Tuesday. The Tigers knocked off previously unbeaten Houston by 19 points in their last game before the break, while the Eagles are coming off a three-point loss to Coastal Carolina over the weekend.

Sophomore guard Antonio Blakeney leads the LSU offense, averaging 15.6 points, and he had a big game in the win over Houston, scoring 23 points and grabbing eight rebounds. While Blakeney provides the firepower on the perimeter, 6-10 junior Duop Reath has been a steady force inside, averaging 13.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in his first season with the Tigers. Reath is an active defender and with going to the boards, but he must avoid foul trouble better, having fouled out twice already this season. North Carolina Central isn’t an opponent for the Tigers to overlook either, having already topped Missouri and falling to Ohio State by just six.
