But LSU sported just an 8-5 record going into last night, with a non-conference strength of schedule ranked in the 300s according to KenPom, both of which leave a lot to be desired at this point in the season.

Last night LSU hosted one of the most talented teams in the NCAA in Kentucky, which prompted 25 NBA teams to send representatives to Baton Rouge to scout the game. LSU followed up their strong road win over Vanderbilt with another convincing effort, beating Kentucky by nearly 20 points, with Simmons scoring 14 points on just 5 shots in 27 minutes (to go along with 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 2 turnovers). While it would be foolish to draw too many long term conclusions off this contest alone, this is a very interesting matchup to analyze nonetheless due to the quality of athletes Kentucky has at their disposal to throw at him.

Via Mike Schmitz, here's a six minute, forty second video breakdown of some of the more notable things NBA scouts were able to see last night, both good and bad, on either end of the floor.
