LSU is pretty good. They've been dragged down by inconsistent effort, the mark of a team that hasn't bought into the coach. Here's an image of their shot chart this year:

Most of those makes on the left side are because that's Ben Simmons strength. He's really good 15 feet and in, and he'll be the single toughest matchup Mizzou will face this season. He doesn't shoot many three's tho:
