Ben Simmons mocks Kentucky on Instagram after LSU’s upset win

The LSU Tigers had a lot of high hopes entering the 2015-16 season as they have one of the best players in the country in Ben Simmons. He has lived up to the hype and has continued to show why he will be a lottery pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Tuesday night, however, they pulled off a big 85-67 upset over the number nine Kentucky Wildcats. In the game, Simmons had a pretty quiet performance by his own standards, but still pulled off a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

He still found a way to get his name in the spotlight. He took to Instagram after the big win and mocked the Wildcats with lyrics to a song by Drake, who is a huge Wildcats fan.

The Tigers now sit at 9-5 and are tied for first in the SEC with South Carolina. They may not have done great in their non-conference schedule, but they will certainly use this big win as motivation for the rest of the SEC slate.
