The LSU Tigers could be down another key scorer.

While hosting Texas A&M, the Tigers were already down both Xavier Pinson and Darius Days who were both injured.

In the second half, the Tigers also lost Tari Eason - not once, but twice.

Eason limped off the court, only to be escorted into the locker room.

He exited the game for the second and final time, limping off the court at the 6-minute mark in the second half.

Eason scored 14 points and grabbed nine rebounds, nearing another double-double.

Eason's first exit came around the 13-minute mark in the second half.

The sophomore forward came back rather quickly and was later seen on the game broadcast drinking gatorade, leading the broadcast team to suspect maybe he was just experiencing muscle cramps.

After his return, the Tigers went on a 6-0 run, staying competitive with the Aggies.

The Tigers went on to win the game 70-64, after a crucial final minute.
