On LSU beyond freshman phenom Ben Simmons …
“Boy, I really like the way Blakeney’s been playing in watching him. Victor’s a guy on the inside who can rebound and complement Simmons pretty well. Quarteman is a guy who can do a lot for their team. He handles the ball well. He distributes it well. He shoots it pretty well from 3. The thing that most impresses me about LSU in watching them, I’ve watched them a lot more the past two or three days, is what a great passer Simmons is. I know he’s had games where he hasn’t scored very much and they’ve still won, but he’s a guy who really makes everyone else better whether you’re playing man, zone or whatever. He sees the floor extremely well. He’s a tough guard on the inside for us, too, because he’s so big and so physical and posts up so hard.”
On what he thinks the source of Missouri’s defensive struggles, particularly lately …
“Part of it is offensively we’ve tried to play a little bit faster. I don’t think our transition defense has been as good as it needs to be. We’re giving up more points but for the most part we’ve scored some more points than we have in the past. That’s certainly a concern going down the stretch. We need to do a better job holding teams down. We gave up way too many points last weekend.”
A leading candidate for Southeastern Conference player of the year honors, Simmons has put LSU’s program in the national crosshairs — and attracted gobs of scrutiny for the team’s gross underachievement. Coach Johnny Jones’ Tigers (17-12, 10-16 SEC), ranked No. 21 in the preseason AP poll, enter Tuesday’s game against Mizzou in great danger of missing the NCAA Tournament despite Simmons’ spellbinding season, plus a rich collection of four-star talents around the 19-year-old wunderkind.
As of Monday, LSU stood at No. 85 in the RPI with a 7-6 record against teams in the RPI top 100 — plus six losses to teams with an RPI higher than 100. Those aren’t the credentials of a team bound for an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament. ESPN’s latest bracket projections have LSU among the first eight teams out of the field.
