    BATON ROUGE, La. -- Andre Stringer scored 16 points and LSU coach Trent Johnson won his 200th game as the Tigers defeated Centenary 78-36 on Wednesday night.

    Stringer matched his season-high with four 3-pointers and Malcolm White added 14 points and seven rebounds for LSU.

    Johnson, who is 200-151 in his career, coached at Nevada and Stanford before joining the Tigers in 2008.

    Centenary (0-6) was held to 36 points, the fewest allowed by the Tigers since defeating Nicholls State 68-24 eight years ago.

    Sparked by two 3-pointers from Aaron Dotson, LSU jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the first three minutes.

    With Leo Davis, Logan Lowery and Maxx Nakwaash knocking down 3-pointers, Centenary pulled to 12-10.

    The Tigers then went on an 18-5 run over the next 7 minutes to take control.

    Ralston Turner and White provided most of the offense during that stretch. Turner made two field goals, one a 3-pointer. White scored the last six points to put the Tigers in front 30-15.

    White and Stringer combined for the next nine points as LSU went into halftime with a 39-21 advantage. White had two free throws and a field goal, and Stringer sank two baskets, including a 3-pointer.

    Centenary scored just five points in the first 10 minutes of the second half.

    Davis led the Gents with 10 points.
