2013-2014 Player Profile: Luke Fischer

  • Jordan Littman 10/07/2013 9:14 am  

With the start of college basketball season on the horizon, we’ll be taking a long look at the conference at large as well as Indiana’s roster over the next month. Today, we look at freshman Luke Fischer. Before he has even stepped onto the court for a game as an Indiana Hoosier, Indiana coach Tom Crean has referred to freshman center Luke Fischer as a "year-round winner." Crean's bold critique is justified, though: In Fischer's final two years of high school basketball at Germantown (Wis.), he led his team to a 52-0 combined record and back-to-back state titles. Now, the 6-foot-11, 230-pound Fischer is on the defending Big Ten champion squad. And though there certainly is no expectation he will come in and immediately help IU to an undefeated season, his winning experience will certainly help, according to Crean. "He's played in a lot of big games at the high school level," Crean said at his "State of the Hoosier Nation" address on Oct. 2. "He knows what it takes. He knows how to score. He’s not afraid. He comes in there and battles."
