Former Michigan State guard Korie Lucious is transferring to Iowa State and will continue his college basketball career playing under Fred Hoiberg, a source told CBSSports.com on Wednesday.

Tom Izzo dismissed Lucious from Michgian State in late January for what was described as conduct detrimental to the program. Lucious visited Iowa State in February and will now join former teammate Chris Allen -- who left Michigan State in the preseason -- as a member of the Cyclones.

Lucious was averaging 6.5 points and 4.1 assists at the time of his dismissal.

They also have transfers in Anthony Booker (Southern Illinois), Chris Babb (Penn St.) and John Lamb (Morehead St) to go along with the 2 from MSU and 1 from Minny.  6 transfers??  Is that how ISU wants to field a team by bringing castoffs?

Uh.....so he will join him as in "join the team".  However, he will never play with Chris as
he will have to sit out what will be Chris Allen's final year.

Fact is Iowa State gets two very talented players;  Allen is a starter, a fantastic defender and when
his shot is on he can destroy teams from outside;  Lucious has starting potential and showed
his moxy in the tourney last year.  Undersized he can be a liability on the defensive end.

Problem is these kids have shown their inability to be good teammates and in Lucious's case have
just been plain stupid.

Perhaps he was dismissed from Michigan State's basketball team  for engaging in pre-marital sex.

Seems to me like this gives the Iowa State program a certain amount of illigetimacy as a basketball program.

Iowa State has a history of having punks, thugs and douchebags on its team, especially during the Larry Eustachy years, so the fact that they're going in that direction again doesn't surprise me at all.

I'd like to see these two guys get their respective acts together and make a good team out of Iowa State.  As a Jayhawk, I have no harsh feelings towards Iowa State, and I'd like to watch some more good games between the two schools.

Does this help or hinder Iowa St.?  Chris Allen left, on his own, because of a disagreement or some sort, or trouble.  Mr. Korie caused his own trouble that led to his forced departure.  Fred 'the Mayor' Hoiberg has to be aware of the over-all tendacy that if Lucious got in trouble once-he will most likely be a potential problem again.  In some detrimental way.  We can only hope that we will have to eat crow  when the two former MSU'ers contribute in such a postive way that Iowa St. will lead the big twelve next year with those two leading in scoring.  Yea, right...and then I woke up.
