EAST LANSING, MICH. (AP) - Michigan State junior guard Korie Lucious has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor reckless driving.

The plea was entered Thursday and sentencing was set for Dec. 20. The 20-year-old Lucious originally had been charged with operating while intoxicated after he was pulled over early Monday near the campus in East Lansing.

Coach Tom Izzo said he was disappointed in Lucious and that the program looked forward to “moving past this.”

Lucious made a game-winning, 3-point shot to lift the Spartans into the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament last season and helped them advance to the Final Four.

Lucious averaged 5.6 points per game last season and started six games. The Milwaukee native was suspended for a game last season for missing class.
