New Indiana basketball coach Tom Crean will not reinstate Armon Bassett and Jamarcus Ellis.
Interim coach Dan Dakich dismissed the players in March for missing an appointment and then failing to show up to run laps as part of their punishment.
Crean also says that DeAndre Thomas will not return to the team.
The news comes a day after freshman Eli Holman told coaches he
intended to transfer before apparently throwing a tantrum in their
office that required a call to the campus police. Crean says Holman
will not return.
Crean calls the moves "bumps in the road" toward developing a family-like atmosphere.
