Indiana's Mosquera-Perea gets indefinite ban
Indiana sophomore Hanner Mosquera-Perea has been suspended indefinitely following his arrest Friday morning for operating while intoxicated and operating with a blood alcohol of .15 or greater.
Both are misdemeanors.
Mosquera-Perea was pulled over at around 3 A.M. on Friday and later booked into the Monroe County Jail, according to a report in the Indianapolis Star.
Indiana coach Tom Crean issued a statement through his Twitter account:
"I had a chance to speak with Hanner before we left for Purdue. The first things I told him were that we loved him and wanted to support him. We are disappointed in him but also disappointed for him. He knows he made some terrible choices, which have turned into big mistakes. Hanner has let his family, loved ones and our program down and he knows that with choices come consequences. The law will handle some as will we. He will not be with us at Purdue and we will continue to work with him on a daily basis and will be withheld from competition indefinitely."
Mosquera-Perea, who has appeared in all 24 games for IU, is averaging just 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.
His suspension comes at a critical time for the Hoosiers, who play at Purdue on Saturday. Indiana has lost two in a row and is 2-5 in its last seven games, spiraling itself out of an NCAA bid.
