Simmons with the cheap shot on Labissiere

Things got a little chippy early between Ben Simmons and Skal Labissiere, the top two players in last year’s high school class.

Only moments after Labissiere checked into the game, Simmons got caught delivering a blatant cheap shot to his midsection:

The play drew a foul on Simmons, while Labissiere looked toward the Kentucky bench and clapped.

    I love UK but why not put in your article that Skal also hit back, just not called. Only real question is why Ben would bother at all with Skal, these 2 are worlds apart in current ability and team value.

    Boys behaving badly. Also, I know Simmons is an impressive man, but watching the replay I’d say Skal is aiming about a full foot too low.

    Please don’t take this as a knock on Skal because I think he’s a really good kid, but his reaction here is him on the basketball court in a nutshell. Hard gut shot received, returns with a light tap on the thigh and then basically wants the refs to step in a do something about it. Now imagine that had happened to Big Cuz. Someone has got to teach Skal to play with passion, fire, anger, etc.
