LSU and Ben Simmons don’t have a shot at an NCAA Tournament bid, and that’s good because this charade needs to be over.
Following a disappointing regular season, LSU had hoped to run the table and clinch an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. Instead, the Tigers quit during Saturday’s SEC Tournament semifinals loss to Texas A&M, scoring just 13 points during the first half and 38 all together.
Simmons, the country's star freshman, delivered another double-double, but it was a game to forget as the likely No. 1 pick went 24 minutes between shot attempts at one point.
