Everything you need to know about the LSU vs. South Alabama online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as game notes and prediction.
Freshman stud Ben Simmons leads the No. 23-ranked Tigers up against the South Alabama Jaguars in what should be another showcase event for Simmons and company.
LSU’s 6-foot-10 forward became the third No. 1 recruit to have a double-double in his first collegiate game. Simmons dropped 11 points and 13 rebounds against McNeese State to open the season in an 81-70 win for the Tigers. LSU followed that up with a 91-69 win over Kennesaw State.
It won’t be easy going for Matthew Graves and South Alabama, but the game does present a chance for the Jaguars to see what they have this year against big-time competition. With seven upperclassmen on the roster, Graves will want to start getting the younger guys some experience for the future.

Simmons will take over — pretty much immediately after the tip-off. He does it all. He’ll get his own points in a vareity of ways against South Alabama, but Simmons will look to have a well-rounded game. If he doesn’t get a triple-double, his stat line will be close. LSU will control the defensive boards and outlet the ball in a hurry. With Simmons, Blakeney and Sampson running the break, the Tigers will be too fast and efficient for the Jags to handle.
