Justice Hill will be back in action for LSU on Saturday after missing the Tigers’ past 3 games.

LSU coach Matt McMahon told reporters Thursday that Hill is back with the team and will practice ahead of the Tigers’ clash with Texas Tech on Saturday. While Hill will be available to play, McMahon said the guard’s role in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge contest is to be determined.

Hill had been away from the team for over a week.

During Hill’s absence, LSU fell to Auburn, Tennessee and Arkansas. Hill, a senior transfer from Murray State, is averaging 6.9 points per game this season.

McMahon’s squad is 12-8 on the year. The Tigers will look to end a 7-game losing skid on Saturday against the Red Raiders (1 p.m. CT, ESPNU).
