BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Indiana coach Tom Crean says Armon Bassett and Jamarcus Ellis will not be reinstated after being ordered off the team in March.
Interim coach Dan Dakich dismissed the players for missing an appointment and then failing to show up to run laps as part of their punishment.
Crean also says DeAndre Thomas will not return to the team.
On Thursday, freshman Eli Holman told coaches he intended to transfer before apparently throwing a tantrum in their office that required a call to the campus police. Crean says Holman will not return.
Crean says the moves are "bumps in the road" toward developing a family-like atmosphere.
