Korie Lucious dismissed from Michigan State's basketball team

By Eric Prisbell

The player who will long be known around these parts as Korie "Bleeping" Lucious has been kicked off Michigan State's basketball team because of an unspecified violation of team rules.

Lucious, of course, ended Maryland's season in 2010 with a buzzer-beating three-pointer in a second-round NCAA tournament matchup in Spokane, Wash. If not for Lucious, Maryland may have reached ... well, you can imagine.

The dismissal of Lucious is the latest development in what has been a disappointing season for Michigan State, which entered the season as a strong national title contender. The Spartans are 11-7 against division 1 competition, having lost three of their last five games.

Will Coach Tim Tom Izzo be able to get these Spartans right by March?

That's TOM Izzo, not Tim.

Izzo is truly one of the very top coaches in college basketball. I wouldn't bet against him. In the last 11 years MSU has the best tournament record among ALL teams from an overall perspective. 11 years, 11 tournaments, 7 Sweet 16's, 6 Elite 8's, 5 Final Fours and 1 championship.

Now that is my idea of an Elite program.

Are you kidding? Of course Izzo will get them straightened out!
