Guard Bo Spencer transfers to Nebraska after ruled academically ineligible at LSU

Point guard Bo Spencer is transferring to Nebraska after having been declared academically ineligible at LSU.

Spencer would have been LSU's top returning scorer this season, with 14.5 points a game, but coach Trent Johnson announced in May that Spencer would be ineligible.

Spencer averaged 11.4 points in 2008-09 as LSU won the Southeastern Conference championship and made the NCAA tournament.

Nebraska coach Doc Sadler announced the arrival of Spencer and four other walk-ons Monday. Spencer will be a senior when he becomes eligible at Nebraska in 2011-12.
