INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana freshman Luke Fischer has withdrawn from school and is expected to transfer.

The move comes one day before the Hoosiers open Big Ten play at Illinois.

Fischer, a 6-foot-11 center, was expected to help fill the void left by the early departure of Cody Zeller to the NBA. Fischer played in all 13 games for the Hoosiers (10-3) and was averaging 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 10.0 minutes.

Coach Tom Crean said Monday that Fischer was looking for a ''different fit'' and the Hoosiers did not want Fischer to leave.

Last year, Fischer was Wisconsin's Mr. Basketball and Gatorade Player of the Year.
