With only 15 days until LSU tips off their 2013-2014 season, Spotlight: LSU Basketball highlights a player who you won't see on the court until next season, Keith Hornsby. His name is familiar because he is the Fortunate Son (1) of music sensation Bruce Hornsby. The 6'4" shooting guard is waiting to move into the 2 spot when Stringer graduates following the season. But don't let the guard fool you, the Big Rumble (2) brings the Big Stick (3) when driving to the basket. He's just a Hop, Skip and Jump (4) away from getting into the lane at all times, and when he gets there, he climbs Jacob's Ladder (5) cause that's just The Way It Is (6).

If driving to the hoop is The Road Not Taken (7), Hornsby is quite capable of knocking down shots from Swing Street (8). He shot 38% from three point land and hit 93% of his free throws last season at UNC-Ashville. So whether he is taking it to the hoop, or shooting from a White Wheeled Limousine (9), he can leave defenders with The Longest Night (10) of their lives. Add the fact that he had 3.1 assists per game last season and he is a formidable force on the offensive end.


*Air Jordan? More like Heir Gordon (11)*

Defensively, Keith can use his size and athletic ability to be a Defender of the Flag (12). His Spider Fingers (13) were able to average 1.4 steals per game last season as well as bring down 4.2 rebounds per game. Fouling? He Don't Do It (14) averaging only 1.7 fouls per game, or one every 20 minutes of playing time. So the Country Doctor (15) has a cure for the loss of Andre Stringer next season, and it all starts with Keith Hornsby.

Johnny Jones has taken Giant Steps (16) recruiting some fantastic players into LSU's program and bringing Keith Across the River (17) and into Baton Rouge was no exception. Tiger fans are in Dreamland (18) with the resurgence of a somewhat lost program. We knew there were Gonna Be Some Changes Made (19) but the speed in which LSU has made it to the Pastures of Plenty (20) gives me The Chills (21). This Old Town (22) has been given a second chance at relevance. The Sad Moon (23) has found a Resting Place (24) far away from the PMAC.

So if you haven't been to an LSU Basketball game, you gotta Try Anything Once (25) and give this Tiger team a chance. The Changes (26) LSU has made is staggering. From a program Lost in the Snow (27), LSU has left other's in the conference wondering What the Hell Happened (28)? Don't be the person who misses out. Put down the Cartoons and Candy (29) and get to the PMAC because this team will be the Talk of the Town (30).

Note: I am not ashamed that I used 30 Bruce Hornsby songs to describe his son.

I went with the references because he's not playing this year, so a in depth read on him wasn't really necessary. Almost skipped him altogether, but decided on trying something a little different.

Sorry if you were disappointed.

Great write up SOS. How long did it take you to work in 30 bruce hornsby song titles?

Enjoyed the others, but the force references just made this one unreadable.
