Shavon Coleman had 11 points and 13 rebounds, and LSU used balanced scoring to cruise past Houston Baptist 75-58 on Friday. Andre Stringer and Jalen Courtney scored 11 points apiece, and Andrew Del Piero, Charles Carmouche, Malik Morgan and Eddie Ludwig chipped in nine points each for the Tigers (8-2). LSU played without sophomore guard Anthony Hickey, who was suspended by coach Johnny Jones because of a disciplinary situation. Tyler Russell led Houston Baptist (4-8) with 15 points, and Caleb Crayton had 11. Houston Baptist hung in, trailing only 12-9 on Spenser Gales' free throw with 11:05 left in the first half, but LSU ran off 13 in a row with Morgan, Corbin Collins and Stringer making 3-pointers for a 25-9 advantage at 8:14. The Huskies closed to 35-26 at the half, but with Coleman scoring five points, LSU led 45-29 just over 3 minutes into the second.
