Monmouth has best bench in basketball

It's hard to pick the best celebration. The Human Scissors? The Katniss Everdeen? The OMG? The Human Hoop? All of them are too good!

That's the 20th TD pass allowed by Ravens this season. Only eight teams have given up more this season.

Ben Simmons was criticized for being too timid last week. Tonight, he goes 4-for-15 and forces things. Still finished with 15 points and 18 rebounds but LSU couldn't overcome a 41-17 deficit in the first half of their loss to College of Charleston. The Tigers might have the most explosive and versatile offensive player outside the NBA, but bad defense will leave them at the bottom of the SEC. Need Keith Hornsby and Craig Victor like yesterday.
