Center Luke Fischer Transfers To Marquette
Jan. 13, 2014
Center Luke Fischer, who began his collegiate career at Indiana, has transferred to Marquette and joins the Golden Eagles for the second semester in 2013-14.
Fischer, a 6-11, 230-pounder, will be eligible to play for MU on Dec. 14, 2014. In accordance with NCAA rules, he will be able to practice with the team until that date, but won't travel with the squad.
"We are thrilled to welcome Luke to our program," head coach Buzz Williams said. "He fits a need we have on our roster in the future, but more importantly, he fits who we want to be off the floor.
"The opportunity for him to invest in himself over the next year, I think will pay huge dividends as his career unfolds," Williams added. "I am very thankful for the trust of Luke, his family, and those close to him, to join us mid-year and we are all expecting great things from him."
Fischer played in 13 games off the bench this season for the Hoosiers and chipped in 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds per game. He made his collegiate debut against Chicago State (Nov. 8) in the season opener and netted a personal-best 10 points in a victory over Kennesaw State (Dec. 22).
A 2013 graduate of Germantown High School, Fischer played under head coach Steve Showalter and was named Wisconsin's Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior. He helped his squad to a pair of undefeated campaigns and state championships and was a consensus top-100 prospect.
