LSU announced Tuesday that talented freshman shooting guard Antonio Blakeney will not enter the 2016 NBA Draft and will return for his sophomore season. Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

“After consulting with my coaches and with my family, I have decided to return to LSU for my sophomore season,” Blakeney said. “I believe I can further improve my skill set in different areas to become even more effective for my team in the future.

“Although I finished the year strong and posted a solid season, I think it is in my best interest to return and continue to improve as I strive and prepare to be the best I can be. This will also allow me to continue with my schoolwork and continue to move forward on my college degree.”
Blakeney, a freshman from Sarasota, Fla. averaged 12.6 points and 3.4 rebounds a game last season for the Tigers.

Yeah let's jump on the guy because he weighed his options for his own life. It's really a shame that Blakeney isn't living his life for Hill Durham'so maximum benefit.
