LSU INJURY NOTE: Brandon Sampson has started every game so far this season for LSU, but he sprained his ankle one minute into the semifinal game against Notre Dame. Head coach Will Wade said after the game that Sampson will miss three to four weeks as a result, so he’s presumably unavailable for this game, just 24 hours after the injury. Through the first three games, Sampson was averaging 13.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists.
