Freshman center Luke Fischer heads to Marquette after leaving Indiana
MILWAUKEE -- Indiana center Luke Fischer has transferred to Marquette.
The Golden Eagles announced Fischer's transfer Monday.
Fischer, a 6-foot-11, 230-pounder, will be eligible to play for Marquette on Dec. 14. Under NCAA rules, he will be able to practice with the team until then, but won't travel with the squad.
Coach Buzz Williams says Fischer fits a need on Marquette's roster.
Fischer played in 13 games off the bench as a freshman this season for the Hoosiers, chipping in 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. He scored a personal-best 10 points in a win against Kennesaw State on Dec. 22.
A 2013 graduate of Germantown (Wis.) High School, Fischer helped his team to a pair of undefeated campaigns and state championships.
