Ben Simmons didn’t play his best game last night, but that didn’t matter for LSU as they knocked off No. 9 Kentucky 85-67 in Baton Rouge on Tuesday night.

Simmons finished the night with 14 points, 10 boards, three assists and one phenomenal troll job.

Sports fans love to make fun of Drake for being a front runner, and it’s because he does things like call himself a Kentucky fan despite growing up in Canada. He’s been to their Big Blue Madness event — you remember the airball, right? — and he even name-drops the program in his songs. One, in particular, seems to have irked Simmons. On ‘Scholarships’, a track on the ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ mixtape Drake put out with Future, Drake has a line where he says, “I rock Kentucky blue on these hoes.”

That should explain the caption in this photo that Simmons posted in Instagram last night:

I rock LSU gold on these 👯 @champagnepapi

Kentucky will get another chance at the Tigers on March 5th, when the two play in Rupp Arena in the regular season finale.
