Stromile Swift recaps LSU’s last week of basketball

Weekdays 3PM - 6PM

Former LSU and NBA forward Stromile Swift joins Matt in his weekly spot to recap LSU’s last week of basketball. It was an up and down week with the two losses on the road at Vandy and Auburn, before bouncing back last night vs. Missouri. What is the one takeaway Swift has from LSU’s win over Mizzou?

“Darius Days, man he’s an offensive nightmare. He creates a mismatch for a lot of teams,” Swift said. “A lot of guys can’t guard him. He’s got that Draymond Green build, but he’s so aggressive.”

LSU has struggled greatly defending the three this season. Why is that the case?

“It’s tough because their zone defense is very good at times,” Swift said. “The problem is you get open shots in the zone. The zone is designed to keep you out of the paint. If you have shooters on your team they are going to hit those open shots.”

Swift talks the advantages and disadvantages to playing a team for the second time, as LSU prepares to head to Coleman Coliseum to face Alabama.
