Rabalais: LSU basketball looks like 'playground ball pickup all-stars lacking the chemistry to succeed,' but season not lost yet _lowres

LSU certainly knows Gardner-Webb, which gave the Tigers a tussle in their 2014-15 season opener before pulling away late for a 93-82 victory.

Gardner-Webb returns only two starters from that game, however, and has struggled at times this season with the new lineup after going 20-15 a year ago and earning a bid to the CBI tournament.
