Luke Fischer elected to leave Indiana University last week, leaving Tom Crean and the basketball program after appearing in only 13 games. On Sunday, Fischer announced via his personal Twitter account that he will transfer to Crean’s former school, Marquette.

The 6-foot-10 Germantown, Wisc. native was ranked as the No. 94 overall recruit in the Class of 2013 by Rivals. He was offered by Buzz Williams and Marquette before committing to Indiana. Fischer won’t be eligible until the second semester of the 2014-2015 season, and with the departures of Davante Gardner and Chris Otule, the addition of Fischer will help the Marquette frontline.

Fischer averaged 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds per game with the Hoosiers. In his final game with IU’s win over Kennesaw State. He recorded season highs in minutes (19), points (10) and blocked shots (3).

      Why this would be a “thumbs down” is beyond me. Sore losers I guess.

    going from IU to marquette says all you need to know about this kid. in other words he is going to a program where he should have gone to in the first place. a place where he won’t have to face superior talent on a nightly basis like he would in the big 10. time to admit IU took a shot on this kid and he turned out to be overrated and unable to make it in the big boy world of the big 10. if he could not beat out the other big men IU has then he was not going to be of much use to them anyway. have fun playing against whoever it is Marquette plays while IU plays in a real league and competes for titles that mean something.
