Arguably the top freshman in college basketball, Ben Simmons
hits the floor again tonight with LSU taking on Marquette at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Three games into his collegiate career, the 6-foot-9 forward is averaging 18.7 points, 12.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.
It's no surprise to those who followed the native of Australia at Montverde Academy (Fla.)
