LSU’s Ben Simmons Puts Up Monster Game; Marquette Upsets No. 22 Tigers (Video)

If you didn’t like college basketball before, you have a reason to this season.

LSU’s Ben Simmons is one of the best NBA prospects we’ve seen in years, and he impressed yet again in his fourth collegiate game Monday.

Those were just two of Simmons’ 21 points in the game. He added an eye-popping 20 rebounds and stuffed the stat sheet with seven assists and two blocks for good measure.

Unfortunately for Simmons, his No. 22 Tigers lost a close game to Marquette, 81-80, in the semifinals of the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
