BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Indiana coach Tom Crean will not reinstate Armon Bassett and Jamarcus Ellis, who were ordered off the team in March.
Interim coach Dan Dakich dismissed the players for missing an appointment and then failing to show up to run laps as part of their punishment.
Crean also said on Friday that DeAndre Thomas will not return to the team.
On Thursday, 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 says the moves are ``bumps in the road'' toward developing a family like atmosphere.
