While it's way too early to deem LSU's Ben Simmons the next LeBron James, he's certainly making the case for his NBA potential in college this season. On Saturday, Simmons dropped this epic reverse slam dunk all over the Oklahoma Sooners and nearly led the Tigers to a win over the No. 1 ranked team in America.
In terms of powerhouses battling it out, it doesn't get much better than this.
Who's up for a bold Saturday in college hoops?
The West Virginia Mountaineers are the No. 9 team in college basketball, but they face a tough test on the road against one of the most underrated teams in the country in the Florida Gators.
Florida will keep its NCAA tournament hopes rolling with a road victory against Vanderbilt.
Pro comparisons are getting Ben Simmons a lot of attention, but they are not the only reason why he is looking like the draft’s consensus No. 1 pick.
The Kentucky Wildcats and Vanderbilt Commodores are two of the best teams in the SEC, so Saturday's clash in Lexington should be a dandy.
Ben Simmons is a lock to be the first pick in the upcoming draft. With that being said, let's take a moment to compare the best player in the college game to the best player at the professional level.

LSU Basketball walk-on Henry Shortess had his hopes and dreams come true recently. Head coach Johnny Jones got the pleasure of announcing to his team that Shortess' hard work has paid off, and the university has awarded him a scholarship.
The LSU Tigers have turned it on as of late, and they can jump into first place in the SEC with a road victory over the No. 10 Texas A&M Aggies on Tuesday night.
