MSU's Lucious dismissed for rest of season

Michigan State junior Korie Lucious has been dismissed from the Spartans basketball team for the remainder of the season, coach Tom Izzo announced late Tuesday.

"Unfortunately, Korie Lucious displayed conduct detrimental to the program," Izzo said. "My focus is on this team for the remainder of the season.”

It's unclear whether Lucious might be allowed to return next season.

He, like Izzo, released a statement Tuesday night.

“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."

Lucious was averaging 6.5 points and 4.1 assists for the 25th-ranked Spartans.

Michigan State plays Michigan on Thursday at the Breslin Center.

Why doesn't Lucious have an NBA future anymore? Last I knew, they had no problem employing thugs. Anything short of murder and the NBA is still doable.

WOW! I think that effectively ends the "Michigan State will get iot together for the NCAA tourney" talk. Huge loss for the Spartys.

Why couldn't he have been dismissed before he hit that ridiculous shot in the Sweet Sixteen against Maryland?

Izzo dismisses Lucious from MSU basketball team

This is a huge difference maker in the scope of what happens in the Big 11!   I don't know what he did, but holy crap.  This was a guy who could have had a nba future, but not anymore.  I tip my hat to Izzo for sticking to what is right, despite how it may impact the team.  No one person shall ever be bigger than what your team is all about!
