LSU gets slipped a Mickey.. for at least one more year

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La - From LSU Athletics:  

LSU freshman All-America forward Jordan Mickey announced in a Wednesday press conference that he will return for his second season as a member of the LSU men's basketball team for the 2014-15 campaign.

Mickey averaged 12.7 points per game, 7.9 rebounds a game (fifth in the SEC) and led the conference in blocked shot average of 3.1 a game which was also ninth nationally. Mickey tied for the league lead in total blocks with 106, the fourth most in school history in a single season.

The native of Dallas, Texas, became just the second LSU player in school history to block 100 shots in a single season, joining Shaquille O'Neal, who did it three times in 1990, 1991 and 1992.

Mickey scored in double figures in 26 of the 34 games and had nine double-doubles, the third-most in the SEC this past season. He averaged 32.8 minutes per game and his shooting percentage of 53.3 percent (171-321) was second best in the league.

He posted 20-point games against ULM (25, Dec. 14), Arkansas (22, Feb. 1) and Rhode Island (21, Jan. 4). He had a best of 13 rebounds on three different occasions including the home win against Missouri and the SEC Quarterfinals against Kentucky.

He earned SEC Freshman of the Week honors on three occasions, the first time an LSU player had earned FOW honors for LSU since the 2009-10 season. He would earn Second Team All-SEC honors for the year and was named to the All-SEC Freshman and Defensive Teams. He would be honored by being named a member of the Kyle Macy National Freshman All-American team.
