Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports
LSU freshman basketball players Benny Simmons and Antonio Blakeney were both named to USA Today's 'The 50 Best Players in College Basketball for 2015-16'.

Simmons was listed at No. 1 and Blakeney at No. 18 overall.

1. Ben Simmons, F, LSU – Versatile 6-foot-10 forward who can do it all. Lamar Odom? Ceiling higher than Andrew Wiggins? Point guard handle for a big man, and if he can develop a reliable jumper, the Magic Johnson chatter will begin.

18. Antonio Blakeney, G, LSU – Great young scorer. Fairly athletic. High-impact player for the Tigers from the tipoff of the season opener.
