LSU’s Starting Five

#1 Anthony Hickey, Guard
Freshman… 5’11”… 182 lbs.
(10.0 ppg, 4.0 apg, 3.8 rpg)

Kentucky’s 2011 Mr. Basketball is excited to play against the team he always dreamt of playing for. He said, “Things happen for a reason, so I was best to come here. I’m happy with my family here.”

He may be happy in Baton Rouge, but I don’t believe for one second that he doesn’t miss Ferrell’s cheeseburgers, Ebonite Bowling Factory, Little River Days, or Rollerdome.

You can take the kid out of Hopkinsville, but he can’t take El Bracero with him.

#22 Ralston Turner, Guard
Sophomore… 6’6”… 205 lbs.
(8.9 ppg, 1.4 apg, 2.6 rpg)

Ralston Turner is in a sophomore slump, but that didn’t keep him from earning SEC Player of the Week honors over the week of Christmas. Despite that impressive two-game holiday stretch, Turner is down in points, assists, and field goal percentage in his second season with the Tigers.

His bio says he likes to go fishing.

#13 Eddie Ludwig, Forward
Junior… 6’9”… 210 lbs.
(2.3 ppg, 0.4 apg, 2.3 rpg)

I know what you’re thinking.

Sorry, I gave up ginger jokes for 2012.

#24 Storm Warren, Forward
Senior… 6’7”… 230 lbs.
(8.1 ppg, 0.6 apg, 5.1 rpg)

Storm Warren is one of those 8-year SEC players. He was the perfect sidekick to Shaq in 1992 and again to Tyrus Thomas in 2006.

His bio on says he wanted to go to LSU after “the first time he saw the tiger.” That’s cute.

#41 Justin Hamilton, Center
Junior… 7’0”… 260 lbs.
(13.9 ppg, 1.0 apg, 7.4 rpg)

Hamilton scored a career-high 27 against Florida last weekend. Unfortunately for him, Kentucky has a young man by the name of Anthony Davis. The Iowa State transfer will have to use his 260-pound frame against Davis if he plans on scoring anywhere near that mark again.




#2 Johnny O’Bryant III, Forward
Freshman… 6’9”… 262 lbs.
(7.8 ppg, 0.3 apg, 6.1 rpg)

O’Bryant played alongside Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in the 2011 McDonald’s All-American game.

He returned to LSU’s lineup on Wednesday against Mississippi State and scored six points in 20 minutes. He missed the first five SEC games after fracturing his hand in LSU’s practice in early January.

    So they have one starter averaging more than 9 points a game? This should be interesting.

    Surely you mixed up O’Bryant’s picture with Eddie Ludwig.

    That is an incredibly tall team.

    First team since UNC that can actually match our size, but not so much in skill.

    I am from Madisonville so I totally appreciate the Ferrells and El Bra references 🙂

    Another garbage SEC team. Cannot wait for UK to get treated like Louisville in the 2nd round of the tourney by a B1G team.

    You hit the nail on the head with the Hoptown references. If you are ever in Western KY you have to stop in at Ferrells. Mrs Ferrell is the nicest lady you will have ever met.

    The Madisonville Ferrell’s is the best of the bunch, it has fries! (there used to be alot more back in the day, Henderson and other places). And is El Bracero’s so good that it’s known state wide? I thought every town had it’s own mexican joint and they were all the same.

    19.) I travel a lot in the state for work. I’ve kind of made it a point to try all the mexican places I can. They actually all differ a little bit. The menus are the same, but technique, presentation, cleanliness, and taste vary greatly from place to place. Even if you go to the four big ones in Lexington they are all a different. To answer your question El Bra, as the locals call it, is not known statewide. However, it has spread in Western KY over the past five years and is the best I’ve had.

    Your welcome for my extensive knowledge of mexican eateries.

    El Bracero is Spanish for “Eat your dinner on the toilet, it’ll be safer”
