LSU Basketball commit Ben Simmons from Melbourne, AUS lead Montverde Academy (FL) to a 71-62 championship victory over Oak Hill Academy (VA) last weekend. The tournament took place at Madison Square Garden and Simmons received the MVP honors. Per

Playing in Madison Square Garden, the mecca of basketball, can be intimidating and cause jitters for some players, but you’d never know it by watching Ben Simmons play on Saturday. The Australian, who won the MVP of the tournament and is heading to LSU after next year, was an absolute monster on the court as he finished with 24 points, 12 rebounds and five assists.
The 6'9" 230-pound power forward is currently ranked as the No. 3 overall prospect in ESPN's Top 60. Here is what he had to say about LSU:

“They [LSU] already have a lot of great freshmen,” he said. “They’ve got Jarell [Martin], Jordan Mickey and Tim Quarterman, but I’m definitely looking forward to getting there. I’m just trying to help them win as many games as possible, if that’s going to the NCAA Tournament, but I definitely think LSU has a bright future.”
