There have been multiple posts about LSU basketball over on ESPN.com this week. All three posts had the same sort of story.
The writers are interested in seeing this young, talented LSU team and they think they can challenge Kentucky for the SEC title. Now, while I think LSU lacks the interior size and talent to truly challenge for the SEC title, there will be an uptick in talent this year not only in Baton Rouge, but across the conference as a whole.
Dick Vitale talked a lot about LSU’s trio of Ben Simmons, Antonio Blakeney and Brandon Sampson, but did end his story with this:
The SEC has a lot of young talent coming in. When you look at Simmons, Blakeney and Sampson, and Skal Labissiere, Isaiah Briscoe and Jamal Murray of Kentucky, and Malik Newman of Mississippi State, there is excitement galore.
My question to you is simple. Are you excited for the uptick in talent across the conference?
