    LAFAYETTE (KATC) -- With an ailing Jakeenan Gant limited to 22 minutes, Louisiana was left susceptible inside against LSU in Wednesday's 84-76 loss in the NIT. Tigers' forward Duop Reath dominated the widened lane. Reath scored 26 points, recorded 11 rebounds and added four blocks. Cajuns' senior Bryce Washington didn't believe the NBA sized lane helped LSU inside, although he did think they got away with a few 3-seconds calls.
