Creighton lands K-State transfer Marcus Foster

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Marcus Foster, who led Kansas State in scoring before his dismissal from the team, is transferring to Creighton.

The Bluejays said Thursday that Foster will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules, but will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Kansas State dismissed Foster last month, saying he had not lived up to standards the school sets for its players. After a sterling freshmen season, Foster's play deteriorated last season. He was suspended for three games and removed from the starting lineup at times.

In 29 games last season, the 6-foot-3 guard from Wichita Falls, Texas, averaged 12.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists.

Creighton went 14-19 last season.
