BATON ROUGE- LSU basketball standout Jordan Mickey has decided to return to campus for his sophomore season.

Mickey made the announcement at a press conference Wednesday afternoon. He said feedback from the NBA showed him he needed "to get bigger, stronger and faster" before going pro.

The freshman forward averaged just over 12 points and and nearly eight rebounds a game during his first year with the Tigers. Mickey also led the conference in blocked shot average of just over three a game, totaling 106 blocked shots for the year, the only other LSU player than Shaquille O'Neal to block 100 shots in a season.

Mickey also earned Second Team All-SEC honors for the year and was named to the All-SEC Freshman and Defensive Teams.
