NASHVILLE — The last meaningful game of Ben Simmons’ college basketball career was essentially over at halftime, and LSU’s star freshman picked up an unwanted souvenir in the second frame.
With 13:50 remaining in Saturday’s SEC tournament semifinal, top-seeded Texas A&M executed a perfect alley-oop over Simmons’ outstretched arms. Then Aggies big man Tonny Trocha-Morelos picked up a technical foul for his staredown of the 6-foot-10 Tiger.
Check out the sequence below:
Texas A&M currently leads LSU, 53-23, with 8:00 remaining in the game. The Aggies will almost certainly move on to face Kentucky or Georgia in Sunday’s tournament final.
