Fischer says he's headed to Marquette
Luke Fischer is headed back home. The recent Indiana transfer announced this morning on his twitter account that he will be continuing his basketball career at Marquette. The 6-foot-10 freshman center grew up just outside of Milwaukee in Germantown, Wisconsin.
Of course that's the program Indiana coach Tom Crean led for nine full seasons. Current coach Buzz Williams was on Crean's staff when he left for the Indiana opportunity.
Here's the confirming tweet from Fischer:
The Golden Eagles are part of the new Big East Conference and are 9-6 on the season. Williams took Marquette to the Elite Eight last season.
It was only last Monday that Indiana announced that Fischer was leaving the program. The news came just one day before the Hoosiers' Big Ten opener at Illinois.
"Marquette allows me to be closer to home while playing at the highest level for a great academic institution," added Fischer on this twitter account.
Two other schools were seriously considered.
"We narrowed the list down to UW-Milwaukee, Creighton and Marquette before making a decision," tweeted Fischer.
