Simmons, Quarterman lead LSU over No. 15 Texas A&M, 76-71

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Ben Simmons didn't have to shoot particularly well or throw down any flashy dunks to provide an invaluable, dynamic, wire-to-wire presence for LSU. Simmons had 16 points, 11 rebounds, and seven assists, and LSU defeated No. 15 Texas A&M 76-71 on Saturday, the Aggies' fourth straight loss. Playing all 40 minutes - sometimes in the post and sometimes at guard - the 6-foot-10 Simmons shot only 4 of 11 from the field, but was 8 of 9 at the free throw line to go with three steals and a blocked shot without a turnover. "Any time you play against a really solid defensive basketball team like Texas A&M and not have any turnovers and you're handling the ball for the percentage of time during the game like that, it speaks volumes of his ability to see the floor and make the right plays and the right passes," LSU

State’s top lineman in 2017 will make visits

For the past two years, University High School’s Adrian Ealy has heard from college coaches.

Now the craziness truly begins.

Entering his senior season as the top-rated offensive lineman in the State of Louisiana, Ealy said he is ready for all the attention which is headed his way.

“I think I’m ready,” Ealy said. “I know I have watched the past two years and the recruiting classes ahead of me and everything that they had to go through. They all said the same thing to me. Get ready, because one you hit the spring of your junior season, the craziness is headed your way. I guess I have to be ready for it.”

Dispelling any rumors of a transfer like former teammate Dylan Moses prior to the start of his senior season, the 6-7, 285-pound Ealy said right now he likes where he is at size –wise.
