Hickey down to 3, sets up SC visit, decision

Fresh off of winning the honor of Mr. Basketball in the state of Kentucky, Anthony Hickey has garnered a lot of interest recently. The 2011 point guard has cut a list of schools and setup a decision date.

Things are happening fast for Anthony Hickey. He was named Mr. Basketball in the state of Kentucky after leading Christian County to a state championship, and most recently, he was named the MVP of the Bluegrass team in the Kentucky-Ohio All-Star game over the weekend.

With this recent success has come a lot of college opportunities for the talented 2011 point guard.

However, Hickey has cut his list to three definite schools and has set decision date.

"In no particular order, these are the schools on his list," Christian County coach Kerry Stovall said, "South Carolina, LSU and Dayton."

There's another school that could make the list, as well —"potentially Butler."

"There's no offer, just potentially an offer," Stovall said. "It just depends on whether Shelvin Mack will enter the draft or not."

Hickey plans to take official visits to the three schools on his list, and according to Stovall, South Carolina is the only school with a set date.

"South Carolina will be his last visit," he said. "He will visit South Carolina officially the last week of April."

The visit date was set up during an in-home visit with Hickey on Sunday night. Stovall was also in attendance for the meeting.

"It went well," Stovall said. "It went really well. I've known coach (Darrin) Horn for a while. He's a good guy."

After Hickey's final visit, he will sit down with his family and make a decision.

"He will make his announcement on May 6," Stovall said.
