LSU men's basketball coach Johnny Jones said incoming freshmen Ben Simmons, Antonio Blakeney and Brandon Sampson have a new nickname before they take the court next season.

"I think they are referring to themselves as the 'Killer B's'," Jones said during an interview on "After Further Review" on 104.5 FM Baton Rouge. Jones said the LSU basketball team will be having a tour of Australia this summer. Simmons, a 6-foot-9 forward, is from Melbourne, Australia.

"It's not a coincidence (we're going to Australia) at all," Jones said. "This was something that was planned with really him in mind. Having an opportunity for him to go home as well. "
