BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Indiana freshman Eric Gordon is expected to play Saturday against Western Carolina after sitting out a game with a bruised tailbone.
Gordon, the Hoosiers' leading scorer at 24.3 points a game, missed Indiana's 70-51 win over Kentucky last week. He was injured in the previous game against Tennessee State.
``Eric has been good in practice this week. I fully expect him to play,'' coach Kelvin Sampson said Thursday.
Sampson also said guard Armon Bassett, who was suspended for an undisclosed disciplinary reason, would miss at least one more game.
``He has got some work to do,'' Sampson said. ``He won't play Saturday and we will just have to wait to see about the following Saturday.''
Sampson said guard A.J. Ratliff, academically ineligible the first semester, could make his season debut against Western Carolina.
