LSU men's and women's basketball extend winning streaks
BATON ROUGE, LA — The LSU men’s and women’s basketball teams probably wouldn’t mind if every month was December. Not because of Christmas, but because the way both teams played in that month.
Trent Johnson’s gang improved to 10-3 on the season and 7-0 in the final month of the year after downing Grambling State in the Maravich Center Thursday night, 69-37. On the same night, Nikki Caldwell’s ladies defeated Louisiana Tech in Ruston 66-55, moving to 9-3 overall and 6-0 in December.
For both teams, the competition will soon step up a notch. The Lady Tigers begin Southeastern Conference play at Ole Miss to open the 2012 portion of their schedule. While the men’s team will face nationally ranked Virginia on Monday at home in the PMAC before diving into conference play.
