MSU dismisses Korie Lucious from team
A season that has been full of frustration, injuries and the failure to live up to some lofty expectations just got even stranger for the Michigan State basketball team.
Late Tuesday night, in a statement released by the university, it was announced that junior guard Korie Lucious had been dismissed from the team for the remainder of the season.
“Unfortunately, Korie Lucious displayed conduct detrimental to the program,” coach Tom Izzo said in the statement. “My focus is on this team for the remainder of the season.”
Lucious also expressed his regret in the situation, but never alluded to what exactly led to the dismissal.
“I didn’t live up to the standards of the program,” Lucious said. “Unfortunately, I let my teammates, my coaches, and myself down, and wish them the best for the rest of the season.” (Detroit News)
