MBB Recaps From Tuesday's 82-60 Loss At LSU

The UMass men's basketball team struggled on Tuesday night, falling to LSU 82-60 at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. The Minutemen shot a season-low 38 percent and committed a season-high 18 turnovers, something that head coach Derek Kellogg mentioned would be addressed in the coming days and weeks. UMass will have more time for extended practice after being one of just 10 teams nationally to play 8 games in the last 18 days, often leaving 1-2 days to prepare for an opponent due to quick turnarounds and NCAA-mandated off days.
