BATON ROUGE, La. - LSU basketball avoided an injury scare on Wednesday night.

Tigers sophomore forward Tari Eason left LSU's 70-64 win over Texas A&M in the second half and did not return. It was not clear how and when the injury occurred, but LSU coach Will Wade said that Eason just experienced cramping and did not indicate that it was serious enough for him to miss any time.

"He just got an IV," Wade said.

Despite missing a chunk of the game, Eason finished as LSU's third-leading scorer with 14 points. He is LSU's leading scorer, averaging 16 points per contest on 53.8% shooting before Wednesday's game.

Eason's absence meant that LSU (16-4, 4-4 SEC) had to finish the contest without its top three scorers, as senior forward Darius Days and senior guard Xavier Pinson were already ruled out of the contest.

Days re-injured his ankle against Tennessee last Sunday, an injury that he originally sustained against Alabama a week ago. Pinson has been out with a knee sprain since Jan. 9.
