LSU News & Notes

Simmons Named National Freshman of the Week

LSU forward Ben Simmons is the Wayman Tisdale National Freshman of the Week for games ending the week of Jan. 7. Simmons was selected by CBSSports.com's Matt Norlander, in partnership with the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. Later in the season, the USBWA will release a midseason watch list before naming finalists for the award. This season marks the first time a weekly national freshman of the week will be selected and, each Tuesday through Feb. 23, a standout first-year player will be chosen for the honor.

Hambrick Earns SEC Gymnast of the Week Honor

LSU sophomore Myia Hambrick has been named the Southeastern Conference Gymnast of the Week after her stellar performance against Arkansas, the league office announced Tuesday. Hambrick had arguably the finest meet of her young career to lead LSU past then-No. 8 Arkansas, 197.425-196.150, on Feb. 5 in the Maravich Center.

Former Tiger Venus Wins ATP Title

In his second ATP doubles victory of the year, LSU alumnus Michael Venus and partner Make Pavic, seeded No. 2, defeated Alex and Mischa Zverev 7-5, 7-6(4), in Montpellier, France, Feb. 8. This was the second time the Zverev brothers faced former Tigers in the tournament, after taking down another brother duo in Ken and Neal Skupski.

Feinswog: Basketball Starts 'Second Half' Atop SEC

With 12 minutes, 45 seconds left in the first half Saturday, LSU went down by 14 points to Mississippi State, the next-to-last-place team in the SEC. “It was a weird beginning of the game,” LSU senior guard Keith Hornsby said. It hardly seemed likely that by the end, after an 88-77 LSU victory, that the Tigers would hold sole possession of first place in the league.

Doug Thompson Joins Baseball Broadcast Crew

Thompson will join play-by-play announcer Chris Blair in the booth on Friday, February 19, when Blair makes his debut as the “Voice of the Tigers” for LSU’s season opener versus Cincinnati in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.
