LSU's Ben Simmons leads Tigers to upset of No. 9 Kentucky Wildcats
Wednesday January 6th, 2016

Ben Simmons led LSU to an upset victory over the Kentucky Wildcats Tuesday night and if his putback dunks and praise from Magic Johnson were not enough, the nation’s top college prospect capped off his night by owning none other than Drake on Instagram.

Simmons posted a picture of himself finishing at the rim as two Kentucky defenders look on helplessly; he captioned it with a new spin on a Drake lyric that originally shouted out the Wildcats.

This was a bold move considering Drake’s recent success in the realm of diss track, but we all know there is room in the rapper’s heart for many teams, so it seems more likely he will welcome Simmons with open arms than give him the Meek Mill treatment.
