BIMINI, Bahamas – No. 12 LSU will play its first game away from home Thursday against George Mason and UAB in the Goombay Splash at Gateway Christian Academy.

The games can be streamed on FloHoops and fans can also listen to 107.3 FM in Baton Rouge.

“You don’t have your fans cheering for you,” LSU coach Kim Mulkey said. “You’re not on your court. You’re not sleeping in your bed. We’re going to try to stay focused. It’s this time of the year you see upsets; you saw multiple (over the weekend).”
