Darius Days got to a ball most players wouldn't. Then, he made a shot most players couldn't. In the end, his team won a game many teams shouldn't.
On the back of back-to-back defeats, LSU trailed Missouri for 32:46 on Tuesday night in Baton Rouge, and until the final five minutes of play, they led for a meager 22 seconds.
But Days delivered in crunch time, giving LSU a 72-69 lead with 4:44 left on a three-pointer and securing the 82-78 win with a hustle play typical of his game.
With the Tigers up 76-73 and less than 30 seconds left, Days scampered to pick up a loose ball on the left baseline.
