LISTEN IN: Jordan Mickey

Sophomore forward Jordan Mickey has seen his offensive game grow by leaps and bounds this season. He discussed the offseason work put in, playing without Johnny O'Bryant and what's most important to him when he plays.

Entering SEC play sophomore forward Jordan Mickey is terrorizing opposing players near the rim at a near-identical level to a season ago.

Last year, as a freshman, the Dallas native rejected 43 shots in 12 games before SEC play. So far in this campaign, Mickey has played in 12 of 13 LSU games and sent back 44 shots.

Where he's a markedly different - and improved - player is on the offensive end, showing off an array of mid-range shots and a few moves near the basket unseen last season playing next to post stalwart Johnny O'Bryant.

With more of a role on that end, Mickey is now scoring 16.3 points a game to go with his lofty averages of 10.3 rebounds and 3.7 blocks.

Mickey spoke about that changing dynamic as well as what's important to him when he plays and winning on the road in this one-on-one interview below with TSD.
