Down by two points with 3 seconds left, LSU in-bounded the ball to freshman Tremont Waters nailed a desperation 3-pointer from 35-feet away to give the Tigers an impressive 69-68 victory over 11th ranked Texas A&M. 


Waters finished with 21 points as he was 5-of-9 from three-point land. He also nailed a three-pointer with 12-seconds left to get LSU within two points. 
 
The Tigers were 12-of-28 from 3-point territory. Aaron Epps hit three of them and finished with 11 points. Skylar Mays also had 11 points. 
 
LSU also played some good defense, holding the Aggies to 39% shooting, 5-of-25 from 3-point territory. 
 
This Tigers victory wraps a good week for LSU athletics. The Lady Tigers basketball team is on an 8-game winning streak, LSU gymnastics opened the season with a win over Arkansas in front of 10-thousand plus. And LSU was able to prevent the Aggies from taking Tigers defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. 
 
LSU hoops plays again on Wednesday night at Arkansas.
