Fischer update from Indiana

Former Marquette coach Tom Crean was asked on his radio show about the transfer of Luke Fischer to MU and the reasons why he may have chosen Marquette. “He chose to go to Marquette, which we saw yesterday, which is close to his home,” Crean said. “He’s closer to home. I don’t think any of us had any doubt when (Fischer and his family) walked out last week that he wasn’t going to go very far from his house.” “He did a good job here,” Crean said. “He had very good future potential. There’s no question the injury set him back a little bit early on here, and he probably never quite got maybe where he wanted to be, but he was improving. We felt really good about his future. But you know what, we’re going to feel pretty good about someone else’s future here when we sign someone. It’s just the way it is. I have no ill will with him. Great family, great young man.” The comments can be found in the Hoosier Scoop. In addition, fans asking why some players are awarded playing time over other more talented players simply because they practice harder....sounds a lot like Buzz Williams. http://scoop.hoosiershq.com/2014/01/crean-talks-hollowell-fischer-shooting-on-radio-show/#more-27876
