Something that hasn't happened for the No. 19 LSU basketball team in 39 years has Tiger fans rejoicing today.

The ballplayers were on the road in Lexington last night when they beat No. 5 Kentucky 73-71 at Rupp Arena with a final second, buzzer-beating tip-in by Kavell Bigby-Williams.

It was the Tigers first road-game win over a Top-5 opponent since 1980, that one too occurring against Kentucky.
