If you have neither heard about him, nor seen him play already, LSU forward Ben Simmons is this year's biggest star in college basketball. The Player of the Year candidate is being highly touted as a Top 5, if not a No. 1 overall, NBA draft pick coming this June if he decides to make the jump to the NBA. And seeing this move is a glimpse of what this kid can do.
On Saturday, LSU faced Oklahoma, the No. 1-ranked team in the nation, and their top gun, All-American Buddy Hield. Ben showed us in this clip above that he's a big man who can step away from the basket and square up against any defender, and create his own shot off the dribble. Or, should I say that he can create his own two-handed reverse dunk off an ill crossover?
LSU lost this game in a nail-biter at home, 77-75, but this clip certainly gets the nod for the Play of the Game. Well done, Big Ben.
