BATON ROUGE, La. -- Phil Turner's 3-pointer with 5.8 seconds left lifted Mississippi State to a 60-59 victory over struggling LSU on Saturday.
The Tigers were on the brink of their first league win of the season when Tasmin Mitchell's 3-pointer gave LSU a 59-57 lead with 14.7 seconds to go. But with the home crowd going wild, Turner calmly answered on the other end.
The Bulldogs (19-8, 7-5 Southeastern Conference) were able to hold on when Bo Spencer's rushed shot from just inside half court missed everything.
Mitchell led LSU (9-17, 0-12) with 25 points and nine rebounds, while Storm Warren added 14 points.
