The 2015-2016 LSU basketball season is quickly approaching, as Media Day was held Wednesday on campus.

Expectations are certainly higher than usual for the Tigers, as USA Today ranked LSU No. 19 in its preseason coaches’ poll. Australian native and freshman star Ben Simmons is a big reason for that, as many people believe Simmons could be the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft next summer.

However, we’re still in the middle of football season and the incredible efforts of LSU sophomore superstar running back Leonard Fournette. The Tiger basketball players are big fans of Fournette themselves and gave their thoughts on his heroics.
