    Florida 78-70 in a non-conference game Friday.The Ospreys, who trailed by 12
    points with slightly more than six minutes remaining in the game, reduced their
    deficit to four over the next two minutes. A basket by Romelo Banks left the
    Tigers (3-0) ahead 67-63 with 4:11 left.Blakeney then scored six of his 20
    points in the last 3 1/2 minutes to enable LSU to pick up the victory. Blakeney
    made two field goals and a pair of foul shots. Brandon Sampson had a field goal
    and two free throws in the stretch for the Tigers.This was one of those games
    where you keep trying to play better as the game goes along, said Blakeney, who
    scored 26 points in LSUs previous game against Southern Mississippi. You just
    try to correct the mistakes that you make. I am just happy we got the
    win.Blakeney was one of four LSU players to score in double figures. Duop Reath
    had 17 points before fouling out late in the game. Sampson scored 16 points and
    Aaron Epps added 14.It was a grind game for us in the second half with the way
    (North Florida) came back, Tigers coach Johnny Jones said. Our guys grinded it
    out defensively and they executed offensively. Our guys closed out the game well
    with plays made by Blakeney and several other guys.Four players also scored in
    double figures for North Florida (1-3). Chris Davenport led the Ospreys with 16
    points. Banks, Aaron Bodager and Dallas Moore each had 13 points.North Florida
    had lost decisively to its first two power conference opponents this season --
    Auburn and Miami.Were growing up, North Florida coach Matthew Driscoll said. We
    didnt let the lead LSU built in the second half demoralize us. We cut it to four
    points and the guys just kept on fighting. We left so much on the table with 20
    turnovers and going 13-for-28 at the free throw line.BIG PICTURELSU: The Tigers
    were unable to put North Florida away for good until the final minute. LSU saw a
    nine-point first-half advantage cut to one point at the break. Then, the Tigers
    lost most of a 12-point lead down the stretch.NORTH FLORIDA: The performance by
    the Ospreys was quite different from the one two nights earlier against Miami.
    North Florida scored just 56 points while losing by 38 points to the Hurricanes.
    The Ospreys outrebounded LSU by ten and shot 44 percent from the field.RUNNING
    THE SHOWJalyn Patterson played point guard instead of starter Skylar Mays for
    LSU for most of the game. Patterson only scored one point, but handed out a
    career-high eight assists and committed just two turnovers in 27 minutes.GROUP
    EFFORT ON THE BOARDSNorth Florida was able to stay within striking distance of
    LSU all night because of its work on the boards. It was a team effort for the
    Ospreys as six players grabbed at least six rebounds. The leader was Romelo
    Banks, who was credited with nine rebounds.IMPROVED DEFENSELSU coach Johnny
    Jones has emphasized that his team must play more effectively on the defensive
    end of the floor this year. North Florida made 44 percent of its field goal
    attempts -- the highest mark by a Tigers opponent so far this season. LSU has
    not allowed more than 70 points in any of its first three games. The last time
    the Tigers had a three-game stretch of not giving up more than 70 points came in
    the first three games of last season.UP NEXTLSU: The Tigers will play away from
    home for the first time this season in the Battle 4 Atlantis at Paradise Island,
    Bahamas. LSU will meet Wichita State in an opening-round game Wednesday.NORTH
    FLORIDA: The Ospreys will return home to face their second non-Division I
    opponent of the season. North Florida will take on Florida National on Tuesday.

    . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but
    players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a
    result of a suspension or injury.

    . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from
    someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee
    and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs
    with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State
    to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.

    available to Canadas World Junior team.
