Michigan State coach Tom Izzo announced Monday that injured fifth-year senior forward Ben Carter is “100 percent” done for the season. Carter, who transferred from UNLV in the offseason, was ruled out indefinitely after suffering a knee injury in the fall.
Izzo says Ben Carter is "100 percent" done for the year. Michigan State is exploring possibility of getting him a 6th year of eligibility.

The 6-foot-9 forward suffered a left knee injury last season, limiting him to 22 games. He averaged 8.6 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.
Carter spent two seasons at Oregon before transferring to UNLV, then Michigan State. He was slotted to take the frontcourt minutes made available by Deyonta Davis after Davis declared for the NBA draft last spring.
