LSU to hold moment of silence for Wayde Sims on Saturday

Wayde Sims a 20-year-old junior forward on LSU’s basketball team was shot and killed in Baton Rouge early Friday morning. More

Sims, 20, was killed in a shooting early Friday morning near the Southern University Campus, the Baton Rouge Police Department confirmed. Sims was taken to a hospital with an apparent gunshot wound, where he died, police said. "We are still devastated and shocked".

"We need your prayers for Wayde, for his family, for all of us", LSU Coach Will Wade in a statement.

LSU basketball player Wayde Sims was to begin practice for his junior season this afternoon. He started 10 games in his previous season, and averaged 5.6 points and 2.6 rebounds.

"He was on an upward trajectory", Wade said. We need your prayers for Wayde, for his family, for all of us.




Southern University President Ray L. Belton also offered condolences saying, "On behalf of the entire Southern University community, we express our sincerest condolences to Wayde Sims' family, teammates, fellow students and the LSU community".

"There's no lower downs than what happened last night", LSU athletic director Joe Alleva said. No arrests have been made, but the investigation, which has been classified as a homicide, is ongoing. One of Brown's assistants at the time, Johnny Jones, was LSU's head coach when the younger Sims graduated from University High and joined the Tigers.

"Maybe the guy I've been most impressed with [in the offseason] is Wayde Sims", Wade told a local radio station earlier this week. He was a high school prodigy and was named the Louisiana Gatorade Player of the Year in 2015.
