LSU, Saint Louis seek 2-0 starts

The Tigers added depth with an excellent recruiting class led by five-star shooting guard Cameron Thomas, four-star forward Mwani Wilkinson and four-star guard Eric Gaines.

Thomas poured in 27 points to lead the Tigers past SIUE and forward Darius Days added 24.

“That’s what we want from Cam, he did a great job attacking in the paint and getting to the foul line,” Wade said. “Darius did a great job in the first half knocking down those threes. Then, he went inside in the second half.”

Saint Louis is led by guard Jordan Goodwin, who made the preseason All-Atlantic 10 first team, and Hasahn French, who was named to the second team.

French missed the SIU-Edwardsville game while in concussion protocol and he questionable against LSU. Goodwin scored 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds against the Cougars.

Senior guard Javonte Perkins is back after scoring 15.0 points per game last season. He scored 22 points in the opener.

“Be aggressive — that’s what team needs me to do,” Perkins told reporters after the game. “They need me to score. I have a little more confidence than last year. I was just coming in and trying to understand everything. I made a change in my shot and I think it’s working for me.”
