Since he was doing a midseason college basketball teleconference with media members, ESPN analyst Dick Vitale thought Wednesday would be a perfect time to unveil his Midseason Super Six — six players he thinks have been “great” for their teams this season.

“May not be the best player per se, but these six guys have really stood out to me,” said Vitale.

He has Kentucky freshman Malik Monk on the Super Six.

On his weekly radio show Kentucky coach John Calipari said Saturday’s LSU game in Rupp Arena was the “toughest ticket (to obtain for fans)” during his tenure at Kentucky because of LSU freshman Ben Simmons, the likely No. 1 pick in the June NBA draft.

On Thursday ESPN analyst Dick Vitale all but called the game a must-win for LSU (18-12, 11-6 SEC) if it wants to be in the NCAA Tournament.
