 BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -A sore back won't keep Indiana freshman Eric Gordon from playing against Kentucky on Saturday.
Three days after Gordon bruised his lower back in a victory over Tennessee State, coach Kelvin Sampson said that the 15th-ranked Hoosiers' leading scorer was still expected to play against the Wildcats. Gordon, the nation's No. 2 scorer (26.6 points) entering the week, scored a season-low eight points before leaving the game late in the first half Monday night.
Sampson said Monday night that he expected Gordon back for the Kentucky game and he repeated that Thursday.
``He is better,'' Sampson said. ``Tuesday was a day off, so no one practiced. Yesterday he did a lot of shooting. We have a lot of other guys banged up. Armon (Bassett), D.J. (White). It is the wear-and-tear of seven games in 15 days.''
Bassett, a guard, and White, a forward, are both starters but are expected to play Saturday.
White has a couple of jammed fingers and acknowledged he, too, expects Gordon back in the lineup. Sampson offered no description of Bassett's injury.
``Everybody has nicks and bruises,'' White said. ``He knows what he has to do. He has been playing basketball for a while, so I'm sure he has had injuries before. As far as his back, I think he is fine. Just some ice and he'll be OK.''
