LSU’s Ben Simmons sinks half-court trick shot


(Gatorade/Susan Goldman)


Ben Simmons hasn’t even played in college game, yet he continues to make impressive plays at LSU.

The five-star freshman forward mades some ridiculous moves during LSU’s tour of Australia, averaging 20.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 3.6 steals and 2.2 blocks per games. After being courted to play wide receiver by LSU football coach, Les Miles, Simmons proved he can in fact catch, lunging for a one-handed grab during an LSU tailgate.

On Thursday, Simmons showed that he can also shoot with only one hand, sinking a no-look, half-court shot.


Simmons makes his collegiate debut on Nov. 13 at home against McNeese State.
