BATON ROUGE, La. -- A win is a win, but considering the circumstances, LSU didn’t exactly shine in its performance Saturday against Alabama.

Facing off against a Crimson Tide lineup crippled by suspensions to four of its top six scorers, the Tigers (14-10, 4-6) gutted out a 67-58 victory against their overmatched competition. But the win didn’t come before LSU allowed the Tide to rally from a 16-point halftime deficit and force some uncomfortable moments.

The win secured LSU’s best SEC record since 2009, when the Tigers won the conference. Alabama (16-8, 5-5) dropped to .500 in conference play, with a game against Florida looming.
