Tyrus Thomas takeaway

RetardJJ Redick Denied


No need for LSU and Big Baby to cry in this NCAA tournament. The Tigers left the tears for J.J. Redick.

Glen "Big Baby" Davis and a pair of defensive-minded freshmen have LSU just one win away from the Final Four, stifling Redick and sending top-seeded Duke to yet another loss in the round of 16.

Davis scored 14 points despite foul trouble, freshman Tyrus Thomas swatted away five shots and another freshman, Garrett Temple, shut down Redick to lead No. 4 seed LSU to a 62-54 upset Thursday night in the Atlanta Regional.

"It feels good, but it's over," Davis said. "There's another task at hand."

That comes Saturday, when the Tigers (26-8) will meet Texas in their first regional final since 1987. The winner of that one can book a flight to Indianapolis. Texas defeated West Virginia, 74-71, on a three pointer at the buzzer by Kenton Paulino.

The Tigers and Longhorns will square off at 3:40 p.m. CT on Saturday.
