PITTSBURGH – The dark side to the buzzer beater bliss of the NCAA Tournament is the buzzkill.Buzzkill was LSU sophomore forward Jordan Mickey after Thursday night’s 66-65 loss with .01 to go in the game on a left-handed jump hook by right-handed backup forward BeeJay Anya of Washington, D.C.Mickey was one of the best players on the court that night. He was also the most unsuccessful as he missed four critical free throws over the final 1:25 of the game and his last five field goals of the game. But no one on the court tried harder. Others would have faded to the background. And some did. Not Mickey. Over the final 4:03 of the game, he grabbed four rebounds, blocked two shots and kept shooting despite the misses, and he kept going to the basket despite the missed free throws.This is why it was so hard to see Mickey in the locker room postgame. He truly left it all on the floor. It was as painful to look at as someone struggling mightily through a eulogy. You want to help, but you really can’t.I wanted to tell him something, but didn’t. And this is what it would have been:“Jordan, stay at LSU for another season, and your inconsolable nightmare at this moment will turn into one NCAA Tournament shining moment or two. And you will enjoy it that much more. It will be a blast. Just stay another year. You might win an Southeastern Conference championship, too. College is among the best times of your life. Don’t cut it short. Shaq stayed three years. The NBA will be there in another year. You have no better chance of making it in the NBA in 2015 than you do in 2016. So, stay.”My advice would be the same for sophomore forward Jarell Martin, who is bigger and more talented than Mickey with a brighter NBA future. And that is exactly why he should stay another year, too. A late first round pick now, he could be regarded as a lottery pick at this time next season.What’s the hurry? Mickey and Martin can both hang another year without the money. Neither is starving. And the team LSU will field next season will be well worth the wait. One of the best classes in LSU history is coming – the nation’s No. 1 player in 6-foot-9 Ben Simmons along with 6-9 Arizona transfer Craig Victor and guard Antonio Blakeney.With Simmons, Victor, Mickey and Martin, LSU might not need to make free throws to reach the Sweet 16 at the least. And Mickey and Martin would experience something they never have at LSU – 10 minutes or more on the bench in a game. You know, like Kentucky. Victor will join some very good returning guards in Keith Hornsby, Tim Quarterman, Jalyn Patterson and Josh Gray. They’ll get a little more time off, too. All this rest will stop those free throws from going bump in the night.Yes, the money is out there. But trust me, Jordan and Jarell, when you’re older, you will wish you would have stayed another year. There is a famous quote about this.“Youth is wasted on the young,” playwright George Bernard Shaw, who was also a co-founder of the London School of Economics, supposedly said.If you have never heard of him, maybe you should stay in school. And while you’re at it, take an economics class or two if you haven’t already.Here are two other names you may know something about. Chris Jackson, who later changed his name to Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, and John Williams. Both had much better basketball careers at LSU than you two have had.Jackson was the third pick in the first round in the 1990 NBA Draft after his sophomore season. He went to two NCAA Tournaments and was one of LSU’s greatest players ever.Williams, who played inside stronger than either of you and could shoot from the outside better than either of you, went in the first round in the 1986 NBA Draft after his sophomore season. Williams helped lead LSU to an SEC championship in 1985 and to the Final Four in 1986. Without him, LSU nearly reached a second straight Final Four in 1987, but lost 77-76 in the Midwest Regional final to Indiana. The Hoosiers went on to win the national championship a week later in the Superdome in New Orleans. Could you imagine LSU in a Final Four in New Orleans?Just two seasons after Jackson left LSU, he returned for an LSU home game. “I should have never left early,” he told me. “Playing here was a lot more fun than the NBA is.”I spoke to Williams at a 20-year reunion of the 1986 team at the LSU Faculty Club building in 2006.“I should’ve stayed man,” he said. “We would’ve been great that next season. We would’ve won the national championship.”The 2016 Final Four is not in New Orleans. But it is in Houston, another LSU city.Hope to see you two there … in uniform, not reminiscing.

Related LAS VEGAS — Not only did UNLV come from behind to beat BYU for the second year in a row, but the security at the Thomas & Mack Center broke down again as chaos reigned for a few minutes after the game as fans rushed the floor and fans brawled in the stands.Immediately after the game, exuberant UNLV fans broke past the outmanned red-coated ushers and rushed onto the floor, celebrating.Meanwhile several brawls broke out in the stands west of the basket, near where the BYU band was seated, next to a section of UNLV fans. At least one fan was left with a bloody face as the UNLV ushers and security guards struggled to keep order. And down on the floor, Sarah Cummard, the wife of BYU player Lee Cummard, got into an altercation with a Utah TV cameraman, when she apparently tried to prevent him from recording the bedlam in the stands.BYU cheerleaders quickly got off the court and huddled in a walkway under the stands until after the awards ceremony and order was restored. During the altercations in the stands, one woman had even beckoned media members on the floor, urging them to “do something.”Afterward an usher who said he was in the middle of the brawl in the band section gave a brief account of what happened.”This guy came (into the band section) with fists flailing and I said ‘Why do you have to run up there?'” he said. “People were throwing beer on each other. It was crazy.”The usher put most of the blame on UNLV fans.”If they file a report, I’m going to go with the (BYU) guys,” he said.The Mountain West Conference is aware of the problems of security at the Thomas & Mack and in a statement said that a six-foot security wall was installed and “an enhanced security plan was developed” and several public address announcements were made reminding fans from coming out of the stands.An official statement from the Mountain West Conference read: “In any championship or bowl game setting, it is difficult to control the actions of exuberant fans. Of course the safety of the participants and the fans is of primary importance. The MWC will continue to evaluate the overall game management plan for the basketball tournament and post-game procedures will be addressed further at during the spring meets of the MWC Joint Council and Board of Directors.One person from the MWC office pointed out that at the last two Las Vegas bowls that BYU fans rushed onto the field and it took a long time to get them off the field.When asked if more security was needed, the security guard said, “Probably,” and then added, “God forbid we get this thing again.”They will. The MWC has a contract to hold the tournament at the Thomas & Mack Center through the 2010 season.ALL-TOURNEY TEAM: As expected, UNLV dominated the all-tournament team, with three players, Wink Adams, Curtis Terry and Rene Rougeau, selected along with BYU’s Lee Cummard and Utah’s Luke Nevill. Adams was named the MVP after averaging 24 points for the three games on 24-of-44 shooting, including 9 of 14 from 3-point range. BYU basketball: Going down with a fight E-mail: [email protected]
