BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Mike Santa will not have to fetch uniforms and hand out towels to Indiana basketball players anymore. The second-year team manager is joining the Hoosiers on the bench, as a reserve guard.
Coach Tom Crean promoted Santa on Wednesday night for the Hoosiers' game against Northwestern. Santa, a 5-foot-9 guard from Huntington, Ind., was wearing No. 1.
Eventually, Crean may add another manager, Brandon Profitt, to the roster.
``We have needed Mike and Brandon to step in many times for our drills and scout team situations and they bring a great deal of competitiveness and energy to our practices,'' Crean said in a statement issued by the school. ``Unfortunately, Brandon is hurt right now. But we like the idea of having Mike with us and suiting up.''
