LSU’s Ben Simmons had the play of the day with this impressive crossover and reverse dunk but Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield was the hero of the day. Buddy, who only made 1 of his first 6 shots from 3, connected on 7 of 8 from downtown and scored 21 of his game-high 32 in the 2nd half to help No.1 Oklahoma overcome a 14 point deficit and beat LSU 77-75.
Simmons finished the game with 14 points (6-7 fg), 9 rebounds and 5 assists but didn’t attempt 1 shot in the final 4 minutes.
