Posted December 30, 2013 on AP on Fox
Indiana freshman Luke Fischer has withdrawn from school and is expected to transfer. The move comes one day before the Hoosiers open Big Ten play at Illinois. Fischer, a 6-foot-11 center, was expected to help fill the void left by the early departure of Cody Zeller to the NBA. Fischer played in all 13 games for the Hoosiers (10-3) and was averaging 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 10.0 minutes. Coach Tom Crean said Monday that Fischer was looking for a ''different fit'' and the Hoosiers did not want Fischer to leave. Last year, Fischer was Wisconsin's Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Player of the Year.
