Korie Lucious Out Due to Knee Surgery

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Last year, junior Korie Lucious is one of the reasons why the Michigan State Spartans went to the Final Four. If it wasn't for his last second shot against Maryland the Spartans would have been sent home earlier than expected.

However, thanks to the composure of Lucious the Spartans were able to ride him all the way to the Final Four.

Next season, for two to six weeks the Spartans will be without their back-up guard. Lucious had arthroscopic surgery for a meniscus tear in his left knee.

With such a talented recruiting class the Spartans will rely on Keith Appling to pick up the slack while Lucious is recovering.

However, if you ask Spartans Head Coach Tom Izzo he'll be back quicker than expected.
