Korie Lucious Transfers To Iowa State After Michigan State Dismissal

Korie Lucious, who was dismissed from Michigan State due to “conduct detrimental to the team,” has landed at Iowa State, according to the Cyclones. Former Spartan Chris Allen had already moved to Ames.

"I really felt Coach Hoiberg and his connections made Iowa State the best place for me," Lucious said in a statement. "It’s the best opportunity for me in continuing my playing career. I am really excited to be teammates with Chris Allen again. He is one of my closest friends. I know I won’t be able to play next year, but I can work hard every day in practice and make the team better. I can’t wait to get there."

Lucious was averaging 6.5 points and 4.1 assists a game before Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo kicked him off the team in late January. He was also a key part of the Spartans’ tournament run last year.

Korie Lucious Will Transfer From Michigan State, According To Mother

Michigan State basketball guard Korie Lucious has been dismissed due to "conduct detrimental to the team." According to Lucious' mother, the suspended Spartan star will seek a transfer. SpartanNation.com conducted the interview with Lucious' mother, Latonia Guider, and included this statement

“I love my son dearly.  We certainly didn’t want his career at MSU to end this way, but we thank all of you for your prayers and thoughts.  Korie will finish the semester at Michigan State and Coach Izzo has said he will help Korie find a new school.  We are grateful to God for Coach Izzo and Michigan State.  My son has admitted he made mistakes.  I ask that people remember him and judge him not just by mistakes, but by the man I believe him to be, and that he will grow into.”

The news of Lucious' transfer has yet to be confirmed with the University or Coach Tom Izzo. If Lucious does end up transferring, it will be a sad end to his career with MSU, a career that included a spectacular tournament run last year, when he stepped in for an injured Kalin Lucas and led the team to a Final Four.

Korie Lucious Dismissed From Michigan State Basketball Team

Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo has dismissed Korie Lucious from the team for "conduct detrimental to the team." The dismissal serves as more of a suspension, and Izzo only mentioned that Lucious would be away from the team for the remainder of the season. Lucious had been suspended earlier in the season after a reckless driving charge, but it's unknown whether his dismissal is related in any way. 

According to MLive.com, Lucious was quoted as saying he let down his team with the actions led to his punishment on Tuesday.

"Unfortunately, I let my teammates, my coaches, and myself down, and wish them the best for the season," he was quoted as saying.

Lucious was averaging 6.5 points and 4.1 assists in 24.4 minutes per game this season. Though he typically came off the bench, Lucious was a big part of the rotation for the Spartans. He last played on Jan. 22, scoring six points in 23 minutes in a 86-77 loss to the Purdue Boilermakers.
