Luke Fischer gave Indiana University a verbal commitment to play basketball on New Year’s Day, and even before he left the Hoosiers’ basketball offices the comparisons began.
A 6-foot-11, 220-pound junior post player from Germantown, Wis., combined with the way Indiana’s Cody Zeller was playing made it inevitable.
And Fischer really doesn’t mind.
“Coach (Tom) Crean even told me he wants me to come in and be like Cody,” Fischer said. “People say that I look like him, and some say I play like him. I have no problem with that at all. I hope I can do what Cody has done.”
