Korie Lucious booted from Michigan State basketball team by coach Tom Izzo
Junior guard Korie Lucious was kicked off the Michigan State basketball team Tuesday, a release from the university said.
“Unfortunately, Korie Lucious displayed conduct detrimental to the program,” Izzo said in the statement. “My focus is on this team for the remainder of the season.”
Michigan State's revamped lineup will be tested at 7 p.m. Thursday when the Spartans (12-7, 4-3 Big Ten) play host to Michigan (11-9, 1-6).
Lucious averages 6.5 points a game and a team-high 4.1 assists per game.
