BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -No. 15 Indiana opened Saturday's game against Kentucky without starting guards Eric Gordon and Armon Bassett.
Coach Kelvin Sampson had said Thursday that Gordon, who bruised his lower back in a hard fall Monday night, would play. Gordon, a freshman, was in uniform but was not expected to play against Kentucky.
Bassett, a sophomore, was suspended before the game but Indiana officials gave no details on the suspension. Sampson was expected to address the suspension after the game.
Gordon entered the week as the nation's No. 2 scorer, an average that dropped to 24.3 points after he left Monday night's game 84-72 victory over Tennessee State in the first half. Bassett was averaging 11.3 points for the Hoosiers (7-1).
