Report: Oklahoma State Lands LSU Transfer

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

It's been a busy day for Oklahoma State basketball coach Travis Ford. 

In addition to landing Igor Ibaka, younger brother of Oklahoma City Thunder star Serge, OSU will reportedly grab former LSU point guard Anthony Hickey.

The 5-foot-11 Hickey left LSU after his scholarship wasn't renewed. Hickey was suspended for part of his sophomore season after violating both athletic department and university policies.

Hickey would be immediately eligible to play next season if he receives a waiver from the NCAA, which isn't a second too soon for OSU. 

The Cowboys expectedly lost point guard Marcus Smart to the NBA Draft, but their most crushing blow occured when Ford dismissed freshman Stevie Clark. Clark was in line to take over the point guard spot from Smart, but couldn't stay out of trouble and was eventually kicked off the team.

Hickey averaged 8.4 points and 3.7 assists in 31 games as the Tigers' starting point guard last season.
