Tigers beat Florida to sweep season series

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU sophomore Jarell Martin scored a career-high 28 points, including two on an NBA dunk contest-like slam, and the Tigers swept the season series with Florida adding a 70-63 home win at the PMAC.

LSU (19-8, 8-6 SEC) beat the Gators in Gainesville 79-61 last month. Martin also had 13 rebounds, and Jordan Mickey added 14 points, while Keith Hornsby scored 12.

The Tigers bolted out to a 12-0 lead, but Florida rallied for a 26-24 lead, before Martin sparked a 9-2 run to close the half with his between the legs and to the rim slam dunk.
