East Lansing Police ticketed junior point guard Korie Lucious, 20, early Monday for misdemeanor "operating while intoxicated" after he was found to have a blood-alcohol level of 0.09 during a traffic stop, the Detroit Free Press reported.
Lucious posted bond of $200 and has 10 days to be arraigned in East Lansing District Court.
MSU coach Tom Izzo released a one-sentence statement Wednesday: "We're aware a ticket was issued, and we're still gathering information."
Lucious, a 5-foot-11 guard from Milwaukee, made the game-winning shot at the buzzer against Maryland in the second round of the NCAA tournament in March.
The Spartans' 85-83 victory put them in the regional semifinals, and MSU later advanced to the Final Four.
