WHEELING W.V.- When Antonio Blakeney announced Friday afternoon that he had committed to LSU, there was only one person more excited than the fans. That would be Ben Simmons.
“That’s big,” Simmons told SNY.tv after a 100-79 win over Whitney Young in the Cancer Research Classic in which he went 11-11 from the field, scoring 26 points. “We were watching it before we came over here. That’s a big get for me, because I really know how to play with him. We play really well together, he likes to shoot the ball and I like to pass it. He’s always open around the three, so I like to find him.”
