Indiana Basketball suspended two players: Williams and Robinson

Sophomores Troy Williams and Stanford Robinson were suspended for failing drug tests but they both were expected to be key players for Hoosiers this year.

Hoosiers coach Tom Crean said on his radio show Monday night that Williams and Robinson will sit out four games each. Hoosiers coach Tom Crean consequently inveterate the postponement but congested short of elucidation the root of them, apparently because of student-privacy laws. He publicizes Williams and Robinson will miss four games each. IU opens the exhibition fraction of its schedule on Thursday night against Northwood University.

These three players will be entitled to return for Indiana’s Nov. 20 home game against SMU.

“We’ve got to get our team to comprehend that there is nothing normal about being a college athlete,” Crean said during radio show, his first public comments since this weekend’s accident. “We had a couple guys make bad choices.”

This is the recent in a rough series of off season incidents for Indiana, the most critical of which came this weekend when sophomore Devin Davis was sent to the hospital in critical state with a wound on head after being hit by a car driven by freshman team-mate Emmitt Holt, who was also suspended four games. Police said Davis was at fault for the incident, and both players were drinking.

Earlier this year, IU sophomore Hanner Mosquera-Perea was alleged with OWI, and junior Yogi Ferrell and Robinson were both cited for juvenile use of an alcoholic beverage, meaning Indiana coach Tom Crean has had six players involved in some sort of headline-grabbing, off-the-court issue in the past 10 months.
