Johnson, a freshman guard, established season highs, not only in points, but rebounds (10), assists (5) and steals (6) as well.
Reese, a sophomore transfer from Maryland who was averaging 23.3 points and 14.8 rebounds per game coming in, had 19 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks.
Alex Morris added 17 points for the Tigers, Carson had 10, and Sa’myah Smith scored 11 off the bench.
Jiselle Woodson scored 15 points off the bench for the Lady Demons. Their starters scored only 12 points and shot 3 for 22 from the field.
LSU will be the Goombay Splash in Bimini, Bahamas where the Tigers will take on George Mason and UAB over the Thanksgiving weekend.
