Welcome to the dog house, Mr. Hickey. On Friday it was announced that LSU sophomore guard Anthony Hickey has been indefinitely suspended from team activities.
According to Tigers head coach Johnny Jones, Hickey violated “athletic department and university policies.”
Jones had the following to say on the situation:
“There is a responsibility that comes with playing college basketball,” Jones said in a news release. “If a player doesn’t take care of his responsibilities, then he loses the privilege of being able to play.”
Hickey has had issues all season long staying out of the dog house, and his actions, or lack thereof, have finally caught up with him.
“I know I have let my family down, my team down and LSU down,” Hickey said in a news release. “I will come out of this as a much stronger individual. I pray to be back in my LSU uniform as soon as I can.”
The hit for the Tigers is relatively significant as Hickey leads both the team and nation in steals per game (4.4). He is averaging 5.2 assists and 10.2 points per contest.
Here’s to hoping that Hickey can get back on track in a timely manner to keep this undefeated season alive.
