Martin helps out Big Baby

Earlier in the season, LSU's offense was coming predominantly from inside the lane and at the free throw line.

Terry Martin appears to want to make a change in that area.

Playing in just his second game since becoming eligible, Martin scored 19 points as LSU knocked off Louisiana Tech 68-52 on Saturday at the PMAC.
