Ben Simmons benched for 'academic reasons'
Really intriguing situation today with Simmons. He as made to start on the bench, yet once injected did not come off.
His benching was for 'academic reasons' according to LSU.
Simmons has copped it on social media as a result, however I sense that not all is well at LSU, and that coach Jones may have lost his team.
Here is a snapshot:

For a guy that will be 'one and done', academics are unlikely to be his focus. If you want to penalise him, don't play him.
