Anthony Hickey Rumor Mill. Why didn't his scholarship get renewed? Where will he

It came out yesterday, that Anthony Hickey, one of the top returning point guards in the SEC, will not return to LSU. Head coach of LSU Johnny Jones, decided to not renew Hickey's scholarship along with two other players on the team. Speculation is Hickey didn't participate in studio hall sessions and didn't attend class. There is also the rumor about Hickey being arrested. At this point, it's still uncertain.

Hickey is a talented PG who cause many headaches on both sides of the floor. An aggressive defender who can guard the best guard of the opposite team, who can also distribute the basketball in an intelligent fashion. Hickey is appealing because of his speed, his aggressiveness, and the fact he led the SEC in assist to turnover ratio last season. But, where will he land?

Popular candidates.

UK- He would be stable guard for a season, after the possibility of the Harrisons leaving after their sophomore season. Imagine Hickey and Trey Lyles!

Louisville- Coach Pitinio loves these kind of guards merely for defense and intelligence. He's not a good shooter, but can take it to the rim and finish. Plays defense well, smart, and attacks on offense, remind you of anyone? (cough cough Peyton Siva)

WKU- Close to home, Hickey's hometown is Hopkinsville, KY. Just around an hour from Bowling Green. Plus Ray Harper has been searching for a true point guard since he became the head coach of WKU. Hickey would be the top guy at WKU for a year.
