Jon Rothstein of CBSSports.com writes that Oklahoma State should get a boost from a point guard who transferred from LSU:
No one is expecting much from the Cowboys after they lost both Marcus Smart and Markel Brown to the NBA Draft along with Kamari Murphy (transferred to Miami), but they may be better than people expect. The NCAA granted LSU transfer Anthony Hickey (8.4 points, 3.7 assists last season) a waiver to play immediately last week and that should give Travis Ford a proven veteran guard who has been a multi-year starter in the SEC.
The combination of Hickey, JUCO transfer Jeff Newberry, and Phil Forte (13.3 points last season) is a capable perimeter trio with LeBryan Nash set to spend more time next season at small forward. Ford also said big man Michael Cobbins could resume team workouts by mid-July. The 6-8 big man started the first 13 games of last season and averaged 4.5 points and 4.3 rebounds before being lost for the year with an Achilles injury.
