BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Ronnie Johnson scored 17 points and Auburn snapped a three-game skid with a 98-75 victory over reeling LSU on Tuesday night.

LSU (9-18, 1-14 Southeastern Conference) tied a school record with its 14th straight loss. LSU allowed 90 points for the 10th time this season as coach Johnny Jones' fifth season with the program continued to unravel - with athletic director Joe Alleva and two top assistants looking on together directory across from the LSU bench.
