This past week Ben Simmons continued to deliver in many different ways, while Venky Jois and George Blagojevic also impressed. Ben Simmons played two games for LSU this past week and played every minute, yet was unable to prevent two straight losses. Simmons put on a commanding 21 point and 20 rebound performance in a narrow 80-81 loss to Marquette in front of 51 NBA scouts at the Legends Classic. Making a reverse layup to put the Tigers up for the first time all game with 21 seconds left. Marquette answered, leaving the ball in Simmons hands of the final play in which he passed up the opportunity to take the potential game-winning shot. Simmons would also add 7 assists and 2 steals in the tough loss.
