Its regular season finale on the road at No. 18 Arkansas on Saturday presented an even tougher task, but this is a team fighting for its life. And with the game tied at 78 and holding one last possession, LSU junior guard Keith Hornsby buried a three from the corner to beat the buzzer and give the Tigers one of their top two wins on the season.
Hornsby, who shoots 39.3% from three on the season, was 0-for-3 from beyond the arc on the day before hitting the game-winner.
Bobby Portis gave a 21-point, 15-rebound effort for Arkansas in the loss.
